Supplementary Information Concerning Women’s Land Rights in Myanmar Submitted to the 64 Pre-Sessional Working Group

 This submission seeks to supplement the government report by providing field-based research on women’s land rights in Myanmar to highlight a persistent gap between law and practice. It is based on a joint report by Landesa, an NGO dedicated to securing land rights for the rural poor with experience in over 50 countries, and Namati, a global organization dedicated to legal empowerment, titled, Recommendations for Implementation of Pro-Poor Land Policy and Land Law in Myanmar: National Data and Regional Practices (October 2015).
