A NATIONAL Land Resources Management Central Committee was held in the meeting hall of the Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry on Tuesday with an opening speech by Chairman of the central committee Vice President U Nyan Tun.
In his speech, the vice president said that 17 meetings were held in the Nay Pyi Taw Council Area and states and regions to seek advice from the public on draft policy for land resources management and it was revised by experts to include the advice of the public.
Another reason for adopting a national land resources management policy was to harmonise the various laws concerning land applied by different ministries and to enact an umbrella law for national land resources management, according to the vice president.
The government has been cooperating with the USAID, the EU and the SDC of Switzerland to produce a land use classification map and the One Map Myanmar Project, the vice president added.
In addition, the central committee is working to develop the Land Governance Assessment Framework in cooperation with the World Bank, the vice president said.
In conclusion, the vice president urged those who attended the meeting to finalise the draft of nation land use policy.
The secretary and vice chairmen and officials of the central committee reported on classification of land, management of land resources and the drafting of the land resources management law.
The meeting ended with remarks by the vice president.—  Myanma News Agency
