The Executive Director of RECOFTC, Dr. Tint Lwin Thuang, was invited to blog in anticipation of the “Scaling-Up Strategies to Secure Community Land and Resource Rights” conference in Interlaken, Switzerland. The conference aims to “take stock of current efforts, identify promising strategies, and catalyze new alliances and action” related to land and resource rights. Dr. Tint Lwin Thuang’s blog points to strong and secure rights, good governance, and fair benefits as the steps forward to secure land and resource rights for the local people. His post also discusses findings from a new research report on the state of community forestry in Asia, which will be launched during the Third Regional Forum on Community Forestry in November, 2013.
Stay tuned for more information.
