Participatory mapping exercise with the population and authorities to balance the diversity of interests in the future use of land and the securing of land rights
Previously, boundary markers like the one in the picture were used in Laos - due to unexploded ordnance (UXO) in rural areas and the use of modern GNSS technology for parcel surveying, the use of markers was discontinued by the government
