The Mekong region is marked by particular kinds of historical and contemporary land uses, social relations around land, interactions within and across national borders, and patterns of development that shape changing uses and types of access arrangements. These uses and patterns have been the subject of a great deal of research, of policy initiatives and of societal action. The Mekong Land Research Forum at Chiang Mai University, with the support of the Mekong Region Land Governance project, has grouped together research on land into 14 key themes. In order to help different users make more sense of the available material, we have synthesised knowledge on each of the key themes in a set of synopses. In this book, we bring all 14 synopses together as a consolidated resource relating to the state of knowledge on land governance in the Mekong region.
