The Cooperation Programme on Land Administration was a programme of institutional development at the General Department of Land Administration and three separate institutes in Hanoi. The programme was divided into six projects covering land legislation, cadastral surveying and mapping, land use planning and mapping, land valuation, land registration and land information systems. Policies, methods and techniques were identified and then tested. Four training centres were established in order to disseminate the results achieved. After the completion of this project, Swedesurvey gave advice on land policy and legislation, cadastral mapping, land registration, land information systems, conducted socio-economic studies and provided training to provide a bridge between this first phase and a future project.
