The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment is rushing to finish inspecting the efficiency of land use and to map out land allocation for next year for submission to the Government this month.

One of the main objectives of the project is to examine the use, allocation, leasing and revocation of land.

Another objective is to unify land area statistics throughout the country. Disputes in land demarcation will be tackled after this year.

The project will be followed by land use declaration by individuals and organizations that will help determine certified land areas.

The project comes at a time when the Government is asking for stricter state management to secure farmland nationwide.

In a recent meeting with the ministries of agriculture-rural development, natural resources-environment and planning-investment and the Office of the Government, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Sinh Hung emphasized the important role of a general zoning map for rice growing areas from now to 2020 with a vision to 2030, according to the Government’s website.

According to a report from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnam’s rice growing area was 7.4 million hectares last year and had an annual growth rate of 0.7%.

However, industrialization and modernization have reduced arable land for infrastructure establishment and urbanization, according to the ministry.

The ministry is mapping rice-growing areas for better management of cultivation land and for more effective land use.

The Deputy PM urged the ministries to launch overall checkups on current land use conditions to ensure that no non-agro projects are licensed to use rice growing land.
