The Lam Dong REDD+ pilot area, Viet Nam: A socioeconomic baseline survey

Adrian Enright


The Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) began exploring REDD+ opportunities in the central highlands province of Lam Dong in 2009.

Presented in this report is preliminary work conducted, which has included carrying out socio-economic surveys in 2010 across three of the four communes involved in the REDD+ project area, with an additional ‘control’ commune added to the study. In total, 280 households were surveyed with the intention of creating a robust baseline of socioeconomic data against which follow-up surveys in the future can measure the socio-economic impacts of REDD+. The baseline results also provide an interesting insight into the shape that REDD+ activities may take going forward.
