ABSTRACTED FROM THE CONCLUSION: LMAP has had considerable success in several areas, including the number of titles adjudicated in rural areas, development of legal framework for land management and administration, and the increased institutional capacity of the Ministry of Land. Unfortunately these successes are overshadowed by an increase in landlessness, forced evictions, land-grabbing and widespread tenure insecurity in Cambodia. In large part this is the result of a persistent lack of political will to consistently implement the legal framework that LMAP has developed. This report has outlined the authoring organizations‟ main concerns regarding the development of Cambodia‟s land sector. It has done so through an examination of LMAP, which has been the primary focus of land sector development by the RGC and development partners. The report has aimed to offer constructive recommendations for increasing the ability of LMAP, and any successor to LMAP, to improve tenure security for those vulnerable to displacement or other land rights abuses.
