Advising on customary land rights
Many countries in South and South East Asia have developed constitutional provisions, national laws and policies that serve to recognise, formalise and promote customary rights to land and resources.
To gain access to land and approval to use the land in a timely manner, consideration of customary land rights is essential as part of an overall approval and land access/land tenure strategy.
