The land concession inventory is the result of a trilateral cooperation between the Lao government, Switzerland, and Germany. Representatives from the three partners jointly introduced the document published by MoNRE, the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

This publication provides the first national overview of land concessions and leases in the Lao PDR. It was initiated in response to the rapid expansion of land deals and the corresponding demand for a data-driven assessment on a national scale. The analysis is based on a government database on land investment and includes both statistical and spatially referenced data, in combination with a range of socioeconomic and biophysical variables. This publication gives insight into key issues surrounding the land investment debate, and provides a valuable baseline for further research and informed, evidence-based policy making.
