Land governance helps in determining how women and men,families and communities are able to acquire rights, and associated duties, to access, use and control land, forests, pastures and water resources.

Taking off from previous initiatives of the Land Watch Asia Campaign, this book discusses key issues in access to land and tenurial security for small farmers, rural women, indigenous peoples and other rural sectors in eight Asian countries. It also analyses the mechanisms needed for responsible land governance and the resolution of growing land conflicts.
