Vietnam: The Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) will be collaborating with the Vietnamese Government to set up a multi-purpose land data management system starting next year.
The initiative comes as a response to an increasing demand for land information at all levels of government.
Under the agreement, recently signed in Hanoi, between KOICA and the General Department of Land Administration under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, KOICA will be providing USD 3.5 million in non-refundable aid needed to implement the project.
KOICA will help integrate land data systems across the country from the central to local levels, transfer its land survey technology, and provide capacity building to technical and administrative personnel.
The value of information and the quality of decisions made are directly related to the capacity of the system that produces information. Once the multi-purpose land data management system is in place, authorities will be able to arrive at well-informed decisions and craft better policies on critical matters pertaining to land usage and better resource management.
