This dialogue provided a way for the land community to collaboratively explore challenges and opportunities related to the recognition of indigenous, ethnic minority and customary tenure rights in the Mekong region in order to:

  • Identify issues of common interest;
  • Compare and contrast regional and international contexts and experiences to inform potential strategies and actions at country and regional level; and
  • Generate a regional-level synthesis of key challenges and opportunities to contribute to solutions.

An online venue was used to increase information exchange between participants inside and outside the region.
