Building Community Resistance Against Land Grabbing: Documentation of Cases in Selected Communities in Asia Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Malaysia and the Philippines


PANAP and its partners engaged in a three-year collaborative project that included documentation of case studies on land grabbing.
