    A common misconception about CT systems in Cambodia is that it is confined to indigenous communities in the peripheral uplands of Cambodia and does not exist in their Khmer counterparts. In response, this research compares related studies on customary tenure in Khmer communities, and describes the evolution of customary tenure within them, the different categories of potential resources governed under customary tenure, and the governance regimes of those resources. It then proposes three practical cases/communities for further field-based documentation.

    The Mekong region has undergone rapid socio-economic growth over the past two decades alongside pronounced transformations in a number of key sectors and relations between the rural majority and increasingly-affluent urban centres. Land—as both a foundation for national development and the livelihood basis for millions of rural and agricultural households—continues to play a central role in the Mekong region.

    Key findings:
    "There is no landlessness in the village
    and the shifting cultivation land is divided
    equitably for farming. However,
    there is the concern that part of their
    shifting cultivation area has been classified
    as reserved forests by MOECAF. So
    this land could possibly be granted by
    government to businesses.
    The villagers did not apply for titles during
    the latest land registration process.
    The community does not wish for private
    land registration even on terraces

    The present study on Myanmar focuses on customary tenure among upland ethnic
    nationalities, where colonial and state land administration systems have been poorly integrated,
    allowing customary systems to be sustained over time. Much like under British colonial power, the
    state has an ambiguous attitude towards customary systems: they are not formally recognized in
    law but in practice they are tolerated. Customary land is not titled and therefore at risk of
    alienation. The expropriation of many thousands of acres of farmers’ land during the military junta

    Land governance is an inherently political-economic
    issue. This report on Myanmar1 is one of a series of
    country reports on Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Viet
    Nam (CLMV) that seek to present country-level analyses
    of the political economy of land governance.
    The country level analysis addresses land governance
    in Myanmar in two ways. First, it summarises what the
    existing body of knowledge tells us about power and
    configurations that shape access to and exclusion from
    land, particularly among smallholders, the rural poor,

    This case study presents a country-wide quantitative analysis of a Parliamentary Commission established in 2012 in Myanmar to examine ‘land grab’ cases considered and to propose solutions towards releasing the land to its original owners, in most cases smallholder farming families. The study analyses the information contained in four reports released to the public, but also aims to elicit information they do not reveal.

    This presentation summarizes an on-going research in Myanmar, carried out by renowned agricultural specialist U San Thein and a team of experts, with the support of MRLG. This research is based on a thorough analysis of records on vacant, fallow and virgin land allotted for mainly agro-business projects between 1992 and 2016, and also an analysis of the reports of the Parliamentary Investigation Commission on land confiscation and the return of land. The study also included interview responses from key government staff in all concerned line ministries.
