What is the LIFE program?

The Life project has been running since 2014, with the goal of addressing issues related to land policy and the implementation of land policy, including the impact of disadvantage on Lao farmers.

LIFE was established by a broad coalition of civil society organizations (CSOs) that are members of the Land Information Working Group (LIWG). The project is hosted by Village Focus International (VFI) and implemented by a consortium of partners.

Highlights of the project:

  • LIFE excels at making complex theoretical concepts, such as articles and provisions of Lao land laws and regulations, understandable to laypersons from various backgrounds
  • LIFE’s training materials and coaching sessions are tailored to match the differing contexts and needs of each recipient
  • LIFE successfully mainstreams land issues into recipient organisations’ regular activities regardless of their primary focus. It also strengthens the land tenure security of smallholder farmers over the long term
  • LIFE’s training is designed to enable and encourage recipients to replicate the training in their communities, creating a multiplier ripple effect
  • LIFE has over time developed a team of trainers exceptionally skilled at fostering real dialogue between diverse stakeholders about land issues
