SEA Support for Land Use Planning in Viet Nam (2015-2016)

Viet Nam’s 10-year Land Use Plans undergo revisions every 5 years, a process led by the Ministry of Natural Resource and Environment (MONRE).

During 2015 and 2016, MONRE has been revising its National Land Use Plan 2010-2020 and requested CEP support to strengthen a government-led Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the plan. CEP support, which began in mid-2015 and concluded in early 2016, focused on analyzing land demand allocation using CLUMondo, a model that CEP has been developing and promoting in the Greater Mekong Subregion.

Apart from informing the revised Land Use Plan, the activity also enhanced the government’s understanding of the benefits of land demand allocation modeling, which is an important first step towards institutionalizing such modeling into future strategic planning processes.

The application of CLUMondo provided much useful information in the impact assessment section of the final SEA report as well as a number of its key recommendations for the revised Land Use Plan. These recommendations, as well as more detail on how CLUMondo was applied, are in the final activity report that can be downloaded  below.

Activity

Land use is constantly changing in the Greater Mekong Subregion. At the same time, land use planning processes are often poorly informed, risking decisions that may lead to social and environmental costs that outweigh intended benefits.

Multisector Planning for Sustainable Development (2015–2016)

8th August 2014
Activity

Development planning in the GMS is often fragmented, with ministries and sectors lacking the capacity, tools, or incentives to work together to meet sustainable development goals. When competing for the same natural resources, implementing one sector plan is often to the detriment of another. As a result, resource allocation can become inefficient, costly, and ultimately unsustainable.
