Policy brief: A model for restoring forests and impoving livelihoods in Viet Nam

This policy brief describes how production-driven partnerships between forest communities and the private sector, with government support, can improve livelihoods and economic development while restoring forest landscapes. It addresses the lack of effective, self-sustaining models for community livelihood development based on the sustainable trade of forest resources.

The policy brief draws on experiences in Viet Nam’s Nghe An Province, where RECOFTC with its FLOURISH project, the Nghe An Forest Protection and Development Fund and the International Bamboo and Rattan Organization have been helping the local government to address challenges in the supply chain for Lung bamboo.
