Respecting Community Farming Traditions in Handling Land Conflict

A lack of respect for the role of local people in land use planning and local farming traditions have led to the encroachment of forest land in many areas in Viet Nam, hindering the sustainable management of forest resources. Based on a review and assessment of overlapping forest land boundaries, and taking into account local customs, this brief offers a solution to this challenge. For any solution to work, it is important to ensure the active participation of local people in implementing land use planning and land allocation.
