    Vietnam

    Land rights have become highly contested in Vietnam in recent years. Vietnam‟s land endowment is one of the lowest in the world: each agricultural household holds, on average, less than 0.5 hectare. Access to land is critical to social and economic development in the future. The national priority on “industrialization and modernization” has placed new demands on agricultural and forest land for urban-industrial expansion. The high level of public concern over land tenure and its links to political and social stability have led to widespread calls for revision of the 2003 Land Law.

    The focus of this report is land grabbing in Cambodia.
    it is based on APRODEV Agencies experience from
    many years of development work. The report documents how affected communities have lost their livelihoods because of land grabbing by national and
    international business corporations. Local communities have lost their livelihoods.
    and have not been consulted. They have received little or no compensation for their loss. The system of economic land concessions is a significant part of the issue.

    Cambodia

    Rural areas in Cambodia have been the target of large-scale land acquisitions since the late 1990s. As of March 2012, economic land concessions in Cambodia covered more than 2 million hectares, equivalent to over half of the country’s arable land. In this paper, we discuss the policy narratives and discursive strategies that are employed by various actors to justify and legitimize large-scale land acquisitions. We then analyze the underlying mechanisms of such acquisitions and investments and examine how they are entangled with donor-assisted land use planning efforts.

But for many of the world’s poor rural people in developing countries, access is becoming more tenuous than ever."
