Prospects and challenges in the REDD implementation: Vietnam's experience towards REDD readiness
REDD powerpoint presentation from REDD project in Vietnam January 2010.
The project aims to support local institutions to set up a properly functioning and equitable forest carbon facility. This carbon facility will compensate local villagers for arresting degradation and deforestation in and around Cat Tien National Park. This protection of forests will help conserve large mammals, particularly the critically endangered Javan rhinoceros.
