Land & Livelihoods (L&L)


Land security & local management of natural resources are two of the most critical requirements of healthy rural villages. Without the security to use, manage and profit from the land, people lose a sense of stewardship and connectedness, which may lead to a breakdown of community as well the destruction and sell-off of natural resources.


Activities in Laos and Cambodia

In both Laos and Cambodia, VFI works with remote, usual ethnic minority, communities and focuses on local leadership issues as well as a range of specific activities such as:

  • boundary mapping
