The Global Programme 'Responsible Land Policy' (GPRLP) is part of the Special Initiative 'One World, No Hunger' of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), which aims to reduce extreme poverty and hunger.

In Laos, the Enhanced Land Tenure Security (ELTeS) project, as part of the Global Programme, supports securing land use and land ownership rights, strengthening planning processes and fostering responsible investments in land. The latter component is supported through additional funding from the European Union (EU) through the project Promoting Responsible Governance of Investments in Land (RGIL). Under RGIL, the programme implements awareness-raising, monitoring and dialogue activities related to responsible agricultural and forestry investments. One key approach to improve compliance with environmental and social standards for land investments is to support Lao authorities in the systematic monitoring of investments including the follow-up on commitments that investor, villagers and authorities have agreed on. Via its Investment Project Monitoring (IPM), RGIL currently supports local authorities in 19 districts in the four target provinces Sayabouri, Luang Prabang, Vientiane and Bolikhamsai.
