By the mid-2000s, the land policy had become outdated, so in 2005 the Karen Agriculture Department (KAD) Chair, P'doh Thu Thay Kor, revised and updated the policy with a new slogan "land to the native people". The revised policy was approved by the KNU's Executive Committee (EC) during the KNU's 14th Congress on May 6, 2009. After a series of public consultations and seminars were conducted to amend and clarify some points, the current edition was adopted in December 2015. The Kawthoolei Land Policy (KLP) addresses land tenure rights in a manner that promotes an enduring peace in the Karen Lands (Kawthoolei) grounded in social justice. It envisions recognition, restitution, protection and support of the socially-legitimate tenure rights of all Karen peoples and long-standing resident village communities, resulting in improved political and ecological governance of tenure of land, forests, fisheries, water, and related natural resources. This policy aspires toward greater self-determination in the context of a decentralized federal Union of Myanmar..."
