An Awareness Raising Approach to support Customary Tenure Recognition in the three Forest Categories of Khammuane Province, Lao PDR

Since 2018, The Mekong Region Land Governance Project (MRLG) together with Department of Land (DoL) from Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) developed the pilot workstream on customary tenure recognition in the three forest categories. In 2020, the LIFE project supported them to develop and implement awareness raising activities for the 17 pilot villages and the involved authorities in Khammuane Province.

This case study shows some of the problems in the villages, explains the awareness raising work and gives recommendations for potential upcoming projects.
