Land, and its proper management, is a central issue in developing countries. Efficient use and management of land are key contributors to maximizing the potential benefits of sustainable socioeconomic development. Accurate and accessible land information is a necessary requirement for sustainable rural and urban development, which will contribute to the elimination of poverty. A well-functioning land market is crucial for achieving these goals and a prerequisite for a land market to function properly includes easy, rapid and cost-effective access to land information. Although the Vietnam Land Law (2003) aims at facilitating the development of a land market, there are still impediments to the growth of the land market due to a lack of access to land information. Consequently, land information users depend on personal contacts or approach land sellers through informal means. Therefore, enhancing access to land information is of high priority as land information is fundamental to decision-making on land investment and management. Although the promulgation of these land management laws and regulations is considered significant and substantial progress in improving access to land information, there is a lack of systematic empirical evidence as to how well the transparency provisions of the legal framework on land management in Vietnam have been implemented in practice. Against this background, this report is prepared to document the actual disclosure of land information as required by the laws and regulations.
