Rules for LandNet Activities
Established in April 2013, LandNet advocates for the land rights of forest peoples in Vietnam and the Mekong region.
LandNet members are comprised of ethnic minority farmers living in upland areas, local commune and district leaders, as well as NGOs, technical experts, community development researchers and other interested individuals.
LandNet’s activities follow the principles of equality, volunteerism, democracy, cooperation and unification.
LandNet focuses on advisory activities, supporting ethnic minority communities with sustainable solutions for the rights to management and use of land and forest resources. Our activities benefit ethnic minority communities in Vietnam uplands and the Mekong sub-region. LandNet's mandates are:
To pursue community-based approaches to resource use and management
To develop sustainable management and use of natural resources based on the results of 20-years’ work by LISO alliance on community development
The decision makers of LandNet are local people, not NGOs or technical experts. The goals and development activities of LandNet are decided by the priorities and contributions of the ethnic minority communities it serves.
