Revising the 2003 law on land in Viet Nam: Creating Equitable Treatment for Land Use Right Holders

This brief makes recommendations (issued by the United Nations, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Union Delegation to Viet Nam, Embassies of Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switerland, United Kingdon and United States of America, and Oxfam)  for the revision of the 2003 Land Law. The suggested revisions are designed to ensure that farmers (or rural land use right holders more generally) are treated in ways that are equivalent to other land use right holders. This change will raise rural income and welfare and enable farmers to participate fully in Viet Nam’s modernization.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
