LAND USE RIGHT CERTIFICATES FOR FOREST SMALLHOLDERS: KEY FINDINGS FROM IM-VPA BASELINE SURVEY IN 4 PROVINCES

The allocation of land and forest to local people for management and use has many
positive impacts, not only for forest smallholders but also for government and
organizations in charge of forest management, protection and development. Therefore,
the government has issued many policies to create a legal basis for forest and land
