The main aim of this qualitative-based research is two folds: to identify the main stakeholders who are directly and indirectly impacted by land and who have actually or potentially influence on land use management (LUM) and the critical factors which determine the smooth coordination and cooperation among stakeholders in member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Through reviewing available key literature in individual ASEAN member states (AMSs), it shows that at the macro (aggregate)-level, there are three key stakeholders in LUM, i.e. government, companies, and community. Whereas, at the micro (disaggregate)-level, there can be a large number of stakeholders. With respect to government, many department or agencies may involve in LUM. One important finding of this study is that individual villagers or farmers are not always easy to be integrated in the land use planning and LUM; while farmer groups should be the engine of this integration
