Cemetery Land Use

Problem statement

The shortage of public cemetery places in the community needs community and local government attentions. Evidences show that increasing population numbers and limitless expansion of communities have inflated demands for public cemetery places in the community. With these emerging demands, people are forced to use burial places arranged privately in personal land instead of using public cemeteries arranged at community level.


Project goal

The organization is aware of the rigidity and limitations in legal and cultural procedures regarding cemetery issues in the community. Therefore, our goal, in concert with the community and local government, is to provide legally and institutionally recognized public cemetery places to all people in the community. The organization endeavors to pursue legal procedures and institutional standards in setting up and managing  burial places in the community, considering the socio-cultural values and usage of land resource.
