    This Guide has been developed for use by our colleagues and partners in implementing the GLTN capacity development strategy at country level. It is based on practical experience gained in the course our work during GLTN Phase 2, specifically in the development and application of pro-poor, gender responsive land tools. In our experience, learning is a fundamental precondition for the successful innovations that are so urgently needed to achieve responsible land administration for secure land and property rights for all.

In Cambodia, where land conflict continues to be one of the most prevalent human rights issues in the country, this assertion deserves particular consideration.

    Rwanda

    This paper examines land tenancy systems and tenant contracts in Rwanda, with
    respect to socioeconomic contexts. Our research in southern and eastern Rwanda produced
    data suggesting that land borrowing with fixed rents has been generally practiced, and that rent
    levels have been low in comparison to expected revenues from field production. In the western
    areas of coffee production, however, the practice of sharecropping has recently appeared. This

    Rwanda

    In Rwanda, two factors make land a highly important and contested issue. First,
    Rwanda has the highest person-to-land ratio in Africa. This creates tremendous
    pressure on land in a country where most of the population lives in rural areas, and
    where agriculture remains the central economic activity. Second, Rwanda is recovering

    and genocide, which resulted in displaced populations and overlapping land claims.

Thailand, as a Middle-Income Country (MIC) and regional powerhouse, has long-tapped China’s phenomenal economic growth and undersupplied consumer demand.
