Land Core Group (LCG) is a not-for-profit organisation promoting just and equitable land governance in Myanmar. We work with government and civil society to reform policies, laws and procedures that impact the rights of women and men smallholder farmers and indigenous communities to access, use and control land and natural resources.
LAND CORE GROUP
Secure Land, Secure Lives.
Our Vision is for the people of Myanmar, including women and men smallholders, indigenous communities, and other vulnerable land users to fully enjoy equitable access to, use of, and control over land and related natural resources.
Our Mission is to promote equitable land and natural resource rights and use in the formulation and implementation of policies and laws to strengthen people’s ability to effectively claim their land rights through formal and informal mechanisms and to serve as a hub for research, information, and coordination for land-related work in Myanmar.
What We Do
We work across three main workstreams to achieve our vision and mission:
Civil society engagement
related issues and support efforts to increase the voices of affected populations.
Research, knowledge, and information
Our work in this politically complex and sensitive environment is guided by a strong set of values:
We take responsibility for our actions and meet our commitments. We strive to always involve others in decisions that impact them and promote institutional accountability in our program work.
Transparency & Honesty
We strive to be open and truthful in everything we do and to engage in frank discussions at all levels.
We believe that all people deserve equal rights and opportunities and we challenge inequality at all levels.
Innovation & Learning
We believe that learning and continuous improvement are key to creating innovative solutions for sustainable change to land governance.
Respect for Diversity
We value diversity and treat everyone with fairness, dignity and respect. We seek to understand issues from every angle and to promote respect for diversity in land governance at every level.
We value inclusion in the way we work and in what we aim to
achieve. We believe that fair and just land governance must reflect
the rights and perspectives of all people.
Teamwork & Trust
We believe that collaboration, trust-based relationships and
teamwork are key to achieving high-quality outcomes.
