Recently, The NGO Forum on Cambodia and World Vision Cambodia have launched an important new report, Access to Land Title in Cambodia where more than hundred people from different local and international NGOs, government , medias and community members participated. The report reviews the progress of Systematic Land Registration (SLR) in four areas: Banteay Meanchey, Kampong Cham and Preah Sihanouk provinces, and areas of Phnom Penh. The study provides important insight into how the SLR process is being undertaken.
The study found that, while the process appears to have been conducted appropriately for those who had access to the system in two of the four study areas, in Phnom Penh and Preah Sihanouk provinces there were widespread exclusions from the SLR process. There were also significant disputes involving high numbers of households in conflict with small numbers of influential people.
