Communal land titles in the Lao PDR: Extracting lessons from pilot initiatives

The study was done during the year 2013 and discussed at a workshop in January 2014 at the Department of Forestry. The overall work was conducted within the Lao-German Climate Protection through Avoided Deforestation Programme (CliPAD) of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Department of Forestry (DoF), with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). I would hereby like to thank everyone involved in creating this study for moving the discussion on communal land titles in the Lao PDR forward.
