Actividades - resumen
To date there are a range of activities involving different organisations underway in Vietnam ranging from national level programmes to district and commune level projects. Few of these activities cover every element of REDD, with most focussing on just one or two such as Monitoring Reporting and Verification or reference levels. The UN-REDD Viet Nam Programme with a budget of a USD 4.3 million is the largest and arguably most comprehensive activity taking place. The UN-REDD Viet Nam Programme aims to support the Vietnamese government’s plans to become ‘REDD ready’ by 2012. To do this, it supports many REDD-related activities in Vietnam, including MRV, reference levels, benefit distribution systems, and capacity building. The UN-REDD Viet Nam Programme is also coordinating pilot activities in two districts of Lam Dong Province in Vietnam - Di Linh and Lam Ha. Also at the national level, FAO is about to begin a USD 2.8 million project to collect and analyse forest information for Vietnam to develop a REDD reference level and MRV system. This complements and builds on a long-term JICA REDD project that is designing reference levels for Vietnam. At the sub-national level the Cat Tien Landscape pro-poor REDD project is working in four communes to support local institutions to establish a forest carbon monitoring facility that is able to compensate local villagers to an extent that will reduce degradation and deforestation in the landscape surrounding the Cat Loc section of Cat Tien National Park. Other subnational activities include capacity building projects for climate change mitigation and adaptation for civil society in Vietnam focusing on NGOs and their partners.
