NINH BÌNH – Nearly 200 households in northern Ninh Bình Province have been in serious danger of landslides and flash floods for years, with resettlement funds yet to materialise.
In 2008, the households in Nho Quan and Gia Viễn districts got approval to be resettled due to the serious landslides and flash floods in the area.
In December 2012, the provincial People’s Committee revoked 435 square metres of land in Lạng Phong Commune and allocated more than 9,870 square metres of land to build two resettlement projects in Tràng An and Đồng An villages in Lạng Phong Commune.
