Green Annamites Project in Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue provinces. The objective of the project is to assist Vietnam’s transition to climate-smart, low emission and resilient development that protects people, landscapes and biodiversity in Vietnam’s priority forested provinces.
1. Increase application of low emissions land use: conserve the existing carbon sink; stop emission from small scale deforestation and degradation, and unsustainable agricultural practices; and increase carbon sequestration from restoration of degraded landscapes.
2. Strengthen biodiversity conservation: mitigate threats to the globally significant biodiversity in central Vietnam, including poaching and activities that destroy habitats for wildlife and cause habitat fragmentation (e.g., deforestation, forest degradation, and conversion of natural forest into plantation).
3. Increase resilience for vulnerable communities: ensure that results of activities supported under the two other components are not affected by climate change impacts. Build resilience for vulnerable communities particularly in regards to their livelihoods.
