All of participants appreciated her presentation, as it provided a lot of useful information related to the process of implementing the Land law as well as the importance of building good Monitoring & Evaluation system of the Land law implementation, including the importance of citizen’s participation and monitoring.

The country strategy was presented to participants to ensure there was common interest and agreement on the priorities areas of MRLG’s activities in Viet Nam up to March 2018, and it was affirmed that it is consistent with the actual situation in the country and the region.

  • Consideration of ethnic communities in areas of state forest reallocation
  • Equal land rights for people and minority
  • Contributing to the revised Protection Forestry Law
  • Cross border land investments

MRLG looks forward to actively facilitating the forward coordination and activities of these learning groups over the coming year.
