Increasing management efficiency

Head of Division of Natural Resources and Environment Duc Hoa - Phan Van Tam said that the total natural area of Duc Hoa district is 42,510.97 hectares. In which, the group of agricultural land is more than 25,988 hectares, accounting for 61.13 percent; Non-agricultural land group is more than 16,522 hectares, accounting for 38.87 percent. Besides these advantages, the work of land inventory and statistics in the district still faces certain difficulties. The change in the method of implementing land statistics in 2020 compared to the past requires quality input data; the human resources for doing the statistics must be more qualified and professional. However, the quality of input materials is still limited. The updating and adjustment of changes have not been done well. To overcome problems and difficulties, the district also proposed to fully update land changes on cadastral maps and cadastral records. It accelerates and completes the granting of land use rights certificates in the coming time. Thereby, it completes the construction of the cadastral database, contributing to better support for the work of statistics and land inventory.

Deputy Director of the DoNRE - Pham Tung Chinh informed that the results of the land inventory in the province have been completed and obtained good results, meeting the requirements of the basic contents of Directive No. 15/CT-TTg of PM. The work plans, programs and work contents of the Steering Committees at the provincial and district levels are satisfactory in terms of time, workload and professional quality. Through this work, the People's Committees at all levels in the area know exactly the existing land fund area, structure and distribution of each type of land according to the purpose of use, the land use situation of the organizations located in the area, results of the work of issuing land use right certificates within the scope of management. From this result, the People's Committees of provinces, districts and communes have a firm grasp and more comprehensively the contents of state management on land in recent years, have sufficient basic documents to serve as a foundation for making policy on socio-economic development of the locality, step by step improving the quality of land management, quickly bringing the Land Law 2013 to life in the locality. However, the fact that the key economic zone in the province still faces some certain difficulties and limitations.

Long An proposes and proposes a number of solutions to strengthen the state management of land in the locality. First, it continues to strengthen education and propaganda so that everyone is aware of their obligations, rights and responsibilities in the observance of the Land Law 2013.

Secondly, the province considers restricting the formation of new industrial zones, clusters, residential areas and small and odd projects outside the planning area with the main goal of filling established industrial zones and clusters, and new residential areas, to avoid wasting land, causing damage to the economy of the province in particular and the whole country in general.

Thirdly, the province creates favorable conditions for people to register for the conversion of crops and animals to reduce cases of changing land use to other purposes than cadastral records.

Fourthly, the central government should study and promulgate mechanisms and policies to encourage capital support for organizations, households and individuals to ensure the coverage and stability of the forestland area associated with the use of rational, effective, creating landscape to protect the ecological environment and proceeding to long-term and sustainable exploitation.

Fifthly, Long An also established cadastral maps, cadastral records in the province at the scale of 1:5,000 in the past, nowadays with the trend of socio-economic development, the land is increasingly valuable and changes in land. Therefore, the land management at the above-mentioned ratio has not fully reflected the information. It is recommended that the Central continue to support the investment in the implementation of measurement and mapping of new cadastral maps with the development of the land database for the province, contributing to the good implementation of the state management of land in the locality./.
