Situation and policy recommendations for land management and use in ethnic minority and mountainous areas

Jul 1, 2013

Land policies have an important role to resolve the poverty and social unrest problems for ethnic minorities. Ethnic minorities usually depend on agriculture production in association with land for their living; the ability to switch to other jobs is very low. Most of EMs live with agriculture with the main capital is production land; the poverty rate is high and the majority of poor households are in association with agriculture.

To contribute to the process of planning and completing the land policies for EMs, this consultancy report is oriented to:

  • Describe the situation of the livelihoods, the land management and usage of ethnic minorities;
  • Analyze the problems of policies, laws related to land to ethnic minorities;
  • Propose recommendations on policies in order to ensure the fairness and effectiveness in approaching and using land of ethnic minorities.
