Operationalising REDD+ through Public-Private Partnerships for Sustainable Landscapes in Lam Dong

As of: February 2020

Objective and activities

The project aims to reduce deforestation and forest degradation by addressing the conversion of forest to agriculture in a priority conservation landscape in the Central Highlands. It employs an effective model which has been applied globally and in Vietnam in various commodity-frontier contexts. The goals are to: 1. Strengthen inter-agency (public sector) coordination and institutional capacity for integrated climate smart landscape planning and more effective public-private partnerships with a focus on stabilising agricultural production and empowering communities to manage lands and forests 2. Deliver improved yields and incomes for more than 1,500 farm households in buffer zones, who will be supported through trainings to improve farm management practices (and certification) and investments to rejuvenate their farms 3. Engage the private sector to invest in establishing and maintaining effective monitoring and traceability systems to address deforestation in their supply chains
