The 2004 Forest Protection and Development Law (FPDL) of Viet Nam was put in effect in April 2005. Since then, the Viet Nam forest sector has experienced rapid changes in various aspects along with the emergence of new issues, such as reducing emission from deforesta-tion and forest degradation (REDD+), payment for forest environmental services (PFES), forest law enforcement and trade (FLEGT). The evaluation of 10 years of implementation of the 2004 FPDL indicates that there is a need to revise the law.
Viet Nam Administration of Forestry (VNFOREST) is now calling for inputs for the new For-estry Law. Inputs from various actors will be collected until November 2016 when the Law Drafting Team will start working on the first draft. It is expected that the first complete draft Forestry Law will be circulated for comments by mid-2017. This is a great and “punctual” opportunity for reform actor partners of MRLG to influence the development of the new for-estry legal framework towards improved recognition of smallholder farmer’s and community customary land rights, particularly for ethnic minority groups.

Who we are
Land governance is at the center of development challenges in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam. Governments are revising land policies and practices in order to face these challenges. The project aims to (i) assist the emergence of more favorable policies and practices for securing the rights and access of family farmers to land and natural resources; and (ii) to strengthen the effectiveness of concerned stakeholders through learning, alliance building and regional cooperation.
The MLRG project is based in Laos, with local offices in three other countries: Cambodia, Myanmar, and Vietnam. It supports a wide range of activities (training, exchanges, case studies, focused research, documentation, workshops and seminars) at local, national and regional levels.
The MRLG can support initiatives through three component windows, the first is a learning and advocacy ongoing activity platform supported by National Facilitators in each country. The second two are funded through our Grant Facility open to all stakeholders based on demand and proposals prepared. A short term and immediate response window is the Quick Disbursement Fund (QDF). The second longer term and competitive proposal process is the Innovation Fund (IF). The learning and advocacy activity platform prepared on an annual basis in consultation with stakeholders to organize information collection, analysis, and dissemination, and for horizontal learning and structured learning visits, coaching and pairing, training and organizational strengthening, at the national and regional level.
The Project Facility through these three windows promotes dialogue between government, civil society, research institutions and the private sector. It is demand driven and flexible in order to be able to answer to opportunities and innovation.
The MRLG aims to add value to existing programs and institutions, and to complement them, rather that create new networks or structures.
