Key Findings from the Survey on Access to Land, Tenure Security and Land Conflicts in Timor-Leste


A Land Policy Brief

Continued stability and future development in Timor-Leste are dependent on establishing the necessary legal and administrative mechanisms for providing access to land, land tenure security, as well as preventing and addressing land-related conflict. The survey interviewed representatives of 1,152 households between 3 and 8 of September 2016 in Ainaro, Ermera, and the urban area of Dili and was conducted by The Asia Foundation and the Van Vollenhoven Institute. The survey provides new and relevant evidence for policymakers to ground their decisions on, both with the current draft of Land Law Package, and/or other land-related legislation.
