    In Myanmar, almost half of the rural population is said to be landless : it is the highest rate of landlessness in the Mekong region. With agriculture as the engine of Myanmar’s economy, employing more than two thirds of the population and accounting for one third of GDP, various studies in Myanmar provide contrasting figures on landlessness and indicate that the problem stems from a lack of clarity in the concept of landlessness.

    Dans les villes en développement, les marchés fonciers et immobiliers sont en grande partie informels. Ils concernent les pauvres comme les classes moyennes. À Phnom Penh, l’analyse de la dynamique des marchés fonciers et immobiliers et des modes d’accès au logement dans les quartiers informels permet de mieux comprendre les tendances contradictoires des dynamiques en cours. Cette analyse peut alimenter la définition d’une politique de l’habitat destinée à réguler le marché foncier et immobilier et favoriser l’accès à la ville pour les populations pauvres.

    Cette étude sur les transactions foncières dans les campagnes cambodgiennes part d’un double constat. D’une part, la politique foncière cambodgienne, essentiellement structurée par un grand programme de cadastrage et d’immatriculation foncière (LMAP) financé par la Banque mondiale, ignore les relations foncières ne correspondant pas au modèle de la propriété privée individuelle, à savoir les droits délégués et les modes de faire-valoir indirect.
