COHRE calls for urgent action to protect housing rights in response to cyclone in Burma
The Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE) today called on the Burmese regime to immediately allow international relief agencies unrestricted access to Burma, to deal with the humanitarian catastrophe caused by the cyclone that hit the country on 2 and 3 May 2008.
Although details are still emerging, reports indicate that over one million people have been made homeless by the cyclone, and currently lack shelter and clean water, in addition to the thousands killed.
Burma today is experiencing a crisis in security of land tenure, which includes the widespread abuse of human, economic, social, cultural, and political rights. This report, Displacement and Dispossession: Forced Migration and Land Rights in Burma focuses on land confiscation by Government forces, responsible for Burma's most acute Housing, Land and Property (HLP) rights abuses. Among the most vulnerable populations are more than one million internally displaced people in Burma, most from ethnic nationality communities.
