6th International Summer School 2014
The Faculty of Land Management and Land Administration (FLMLA) at the Royal University of Agriculture (RUA) Phnom Penh, takes a key role in the development of Cambodia. It is providing well educated academic junior staff to the country in its efforts to build up fair and just land governance. The RUA is supported by the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction (MLMUPC), which is seconding several teaching staff, by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) Cambodia, which has long been involved in strengthening the qualification of young staff in the area of land management and administration, as well as by the Technical University Munich (TUM), Germany, which has established a partnership with the RUA since more than 10 years.
After an evaluation of the FLMLA in 2007, it was from this international cooperation, that the idea arose to conduct a – by now international – summer school annually, jointly organized by RUA, TUM, MLMUPC and GIZ. The intention was to tackle important international topics which are of current relevance for Cambodia in the sector of land policy, land reform, land administration and land management including urban and rural development. Academia, practitioners and advanced students discuss current and future issues in the sector in a joint dialogue, and international best practices are presented and analyzed.
