Vietnam - Improved Land Governance and Database Project : Indigenous Peoples Plan (Vol. 14) : Ethnic Minorities Development Plan for Bac Giang Province (English)

The Improved Land Governance and Database (VILG) Project provides a better access to land services for all people regardless of their living place and their ethnic group. The project will gradually be deployed in the communes of Thai Nguyen Province. The minority communities residing in Thai Nguyen Province will also be included in the scope of project activities. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: local cadastral officers will be noted in project training courses that any land issues related to ethnic minorities must be reported to the PPMU regardless of whether the issues are settled successfully or not. The mechanism for settling complaints and disputes, receiving and tracking the progress of dispute resolution should be followed as dictated in the project operational manual and guidance of the CPMU. To minimize disputes requiring the State official system, the project will encourage ethnic minorities groups to resolve their issues through informal but effective institutions in the community, such as heads of villages, clans, etc. A mediation team will be set up in each commune and village to help the Commune People’s Committees address disputes. The appointment of one official monitoring the dispute resolution at communes, districts and the province as well as the training in dispute settlement to improve skills of cadastral officers and village mediation teams will be maintained during the project implementation.
