    Note: The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries, and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (The VGGTs) were endorsed by the Committee on World Food Security in 2012.

    The "VGGT indicators" dataset has been created by Nicholas K. Tagliarino, PhD Candidate at the University of Groningen with support from Daniel Babare and Myat Noe (LLB Students, University of Groningen). The indicators of this dataset assess national laws against Section 16 of the VGGT standards on expropriation, compensation, and resettlement.

    Each indicator relates to a principle established in the VGGTs.

    Answering the questions posed by these indicators entails analyzing a broad range of national-level laws, including national constitutions, land acquisition acts, land acts, community land acts, agricultural land acts, land use regulations, and some court decisions.

    The overall finding of this report is
    that much agricultural policy is made at the regional level,
    and here the explicit price, and trade policy distortions
    are significantly worse than at the federal level. The
    result is patchwork of inconsistent policies, that has
    fragmented the Russian national market. The most serious
    policy issues at the federal level, are in the legal
    framework, the continued state domination of some markets,

    Against the backdrop of economic
    transition, several countries in Eastern Europe have
    undertaken far-reaching programs to restructure their coal
    sectors, which in the 1990s were in a state of deep crisis.
    One aspect of restructuring has been the closure of
    loss-making mines, which are often located in communities
    where the coal industry is the dominant employer, and the
    significant downsizing of the workforce. Mitigation efforts
