International cooperation in training and scientific research has been strengthened recently. The Faculty of Land Management has relations with several countries and international organizations, such as: Russia, Australia, Canada, Japan, USA, Italy, World Genetics Research Institute, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic , Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and China, Italy, Austria, EU.
Some projects of international cooperation of the Faculty have been conducted:
+ Study on slow-release phosphate fertilizer (cooperated with IRAT.CIRAT France 1989-1993).

Cooperation in education
The Faculty of Land Management has short-term training courses with graduate and PhD fellows on the application of GIS in natural resource management. The Faculty has trained students from Russia, Belarus and France.
Since 2000, the Faculty has organized 8 international workshops with Kyushu University of Japan and Royal Cambodian University. Faculty members are also involved in a number of international projects such as the Upland project with the Federal Republic of Germany, the fertilizer project with Chiba University in Japan, the research project on treatment of domestic wastewater by the biological method with the Faculty of Agriculture University UDIN, Italy
In the coming years, the Faculty will continue to promote international cooperation, especially to open advanced university training courses and associate the implementation of scientific and technological projects in the field of management.
