  • Title: Land and Resource Rights | ANGOC
    Descriptive info: What we do.. Land and Resource Rights.. In Asia, overall landownership patterns are heavily skewed: a small fraction of landowners own vast amounts of land, in contrast with the many small/marginal landowners and landless people.. Large landholdings have decreased, but this has been offset by growth in the number of marginal holdings.. The average size of landholdings in countries is generally shrinking.. The increase in landholdings can be partly due to population growth and reliance on agriculture for livelihoods.. The number of landless or near landless persons is also growing in the region.. Poverty and landlessness are inextricably connected in rural areas where land strongly remains a source of wealth and power, and where poverty is concentrated.. That rural poverty persists in many Asian countries is troubling, especially amidst increasing wealth.. Land reform and resource rights offer the best chance for the poor to break away from the shackles of hunger and poverty.. It has been shown that small farm holders are more productive, since they will invest more in land that is theirs.. Land Watch Asia (LWA) is a regional campaign to ensure that access to land, agrarian reform, and sustainable development for the rural poor are addressed in national and regional development agenda.. Land reform monitoring.. The land reform monitoring  ...   are routinely ignored, and too often they are among the poorest and excluded in society, untouched by land reforms.. Land use.. Proper land use planning promotes a rational, holistic, and just allocation, utilization, and management of land resources.. It also provides opportunities for better governance of land resources, especially at the local level.. Proper land use, through allocation of lands, paves the way for development that is sustainable and beneficial to all sectors of society.. The Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition (AAHM-Asia) brings together local, national and international institutions to promote national and regional-level policy dialogue in the fight against hunger.. ANGOC is the regional convener of AAHM in Asia.. The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries, and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) is a set of guidelines that can be used as a reference, given certain national contexts, and be taken into account in defining the governance of land and natural resources.. Principles on Responsible Agricultural Investments (rai).. The Principles on Responsible Agricultural Investments facilitated by the World Committee on Food Security (CFS) hopes to guide CSOs, state-actors, the academe, and business entities in promoting responsible investments in agriculture and food systems to ensure food and nutrition security at the national level..

  • Title: Land reform monitoring | ANGOC
    Descriptive info: Land reform monitoring.. With the recent rise in commercial interest in land and the growth in foreign agricultural investments, land reform monitoring takes on greater importance.. Whereas monitoring used to focus on simply assessing performance of land administration, it now also keeps an eye on the possible reversal or flouting of agrarian policies.. Land monitoring is crucial in improving land governance to address rural poverty and food security.. It is important and timely for CSOs amidst commercial pressures on land and the rise in land conflicts.. It also provides necessary feedback in assessing land reform implementation while ensuring government accountability.. Monitoring also strengthens CSOs’ campaign and advocacy work by holding dialogues with various stakeholders towards facilitating partnership.. ANGOC / Land Watch Asia (LWA) launched the CSO Land  ...   regional campaign.. LWA has developed a framework for CSOs to use for monitoring land reform in Asia – this is one of its key outputs.. This framework seeks to guide CSOs as they undertake monitoring.. It identifies indicators on outcomes on land tenure and access to land that will help CSOs critically examine whether the rural poor’s land tenure is more secure, and whether their access to land has been enhanced.. The framework was developed through a series of consultative and validation processes, including piloting the proposed indicators in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India (focussing on Bihar), Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, and the Philippines in 2010 and 2011.. Land Watch Asia partners continue to put this framework to good use, making monitoring a regular part of their advocacy on land..

  • Title: Land grabbing | ANGOC
    Descriptive info: The description.. Land grabbing.. Recent years have witnessed a surge in the number of agricultural investments in Asia, marked by a scramble for agricultural land.. One driver of this phenomenon is the 2008 food price crisis, when food prices spiraled and hunger worsened.. Another driver has been the rising demand for biofuels.. Asia’s host countries are usually developing countries, where food insecurity levels are high and small farmers are struggling: in the desire to provide a quick-fix to the problems of food insecurity and rural poverty, vast tracts of farmlands have become “up for grabs”.. However, these investments are taking place at a rapid and unprecedentedly large scale, involving more than a million hectares of agricultural land across the region.. These new investments seek resources – land and water – not just commodities and markets like before.. Land grabbing is a serious problem.. Investments in agriculture are really investments in land; and land is a precious and scarce resource.. Too often, governments are slow in land redistribution –  ...   been displaced and evicted to make way for plantations.. Or small landowners are intimidated into leasing or selling their lands.. Human rights violations are not uncommon where high-stake agricultural investments are concerned.. Most always – land deals push through at the expense of the poor and marginalized.. Land transactions are usually shady, lacking transparency.. Finally, the land grabbing phenomenon provokes the question of whose food security these investments enhance, and in a broader sense, who actually benefits.. As is often the case, poor rural communities are at the losing end.. Therefore, any consideration of large-scale land investments must strive to de-commodify land, and recognize it for what it is – inextricably tied to the lives and livelihoods of most of Asia’s rural poor.. In this way, profits do not make the bottom line.. - Adapted from: The rush for Asia s farmland: Its impact on land rights and security of the rural poor by Antonio Quizon (2012).. Lok Niti: Journal of the Asian NGO Coalition.. Vol.. 18/1, 2012..
