Knowledge management and learning are at the heart of the LAND-at-scale program. RVO, LANDac and the International Land Coalition (ILC) will collaborate to implement the knowledge management (KM) component of the program.
Following the endorsement of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) in May 2012, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) – in collaboration with its partners – developed a Global Programme to support the implementation of the VGGT.
LAND-at-scale is a land governance support programme for developing countries. The livelihood of a large part of the world’s population depends directly on having secure access to land. LAND-at-scale aims to contribute to fair and just tenure security and access to land and natural resources for all. This will lead to more sustainable and efficient use of land and natural resources for food, housing and production. It will also reduce conflicts and competing claims over land.
The project will develop a national Multi-Purpose Land Information System (MPLIS) and make a National Land Database available to both the government and the public. The project is designed with an emphasis on building sustainable databases that are accurate, user-friendly, and accessible through a gradual approach to developing Land Information Systems and land databases.
For Vietnam and Lao PDR, which contain large areas of degraded forests the issue of forest carbon stock enhancement should be an integral part of any National REDD+ Strategy. To date, in these countries, like in most others, the focus of REDD+ efforts has been on deforestation and to a lesser extent forest degradation.
The project aims to make biodiversity a key criterion of the REDD+ debate. To that end, it is carrying out a measure in Viet Nam, where it is working to make the criterion of biodiversity an integral element of the national REDD+ strategy and is designing a biodiversity monitoring system. This system will be tested in Vietnamese communities.
In the context of climate change, the southern coastal region of Viet Nam is one of the globally most at-risk areas. The purpose of the project is to increase the protective effect of coastal forests through the sustainable use of resources and biodiversity promotion.
A PDC Cooperation between Lantmäteriet and Vietnam Land Administration. The expected short-term result is a new strategy and tools in form of new legislation and methodology for handling cadastral information. The expected long-term result of this project is a more efficient and modern land administration system in Vietnam including all aspects.
Promote ecosystem based-adaptation (EbA) and mitigation by providing economic incentives for mangrove restoration and sustainable use by piloting projects and integrating results into provincial and national policies.
The aim of the national component is to ensure that successful small-scale actions (i) contribute to the improvement of biodiversity protection in selected ASEAN Heritage Parks (AHP) and their peripheral areas, and (ii) to improve the living conditions of the local population.
The programme has two specific objectives (1) Social forestry approaches integrated in climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies in ASEAN Member States (2) Socio-economic benefits derived from inclusion of vulnerable communities in adaptation and mitigation strategies
