Sharing experiences implementing REDD


via CAAI


(VOV) - A seminar is being held in Da Lat City from March 21-23 to share experiences and technical initiatives in implementing the “Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD)” programme.

The seminar attracted nearly 100 delegates from many countries around the world and many citizens participating in the REDD programme in Vietnam. They shared information and experiences implementing the programme in Vietnam as well as in other regions in the world. They also discussed related issues, such as the role and importance of REDD for coping with global climate change, how citizens will benefit when they join the programme, and managing REDD in localities.

The initiatives proposed by delegates from Vietnam, the US, Norway, Indonesia and Cambodia were highly praised at the seminar because they are important for every country, locality and citizen that wants to achieve the best results from the REDD programme.

Vietnam can be a global pioneer in minimizing the impact of climate change through the field of forestry community. The REDD programme has been in effect in Vietnam for nearly one year but so far Lam Dong is the only province to implement it.
