QUẢNG TRỊ — The central province of Quảng Trị has approved a project funded by the EU to promote sustainable partnership between smallholder forest owners and enterprises in sustainable forest management in response to climate change.

The project will receive 800,000 euros in non-refundable aid from the EU via the Medical Committee Netherlands-Việt Nam (MCNV) and be carried out by the Association of Quảng Trị Smallholder Forest Certification Group over three years.

It aims to enhance the engagement of the smallholder forest certification association and sub-associations to manage forests and monitor greenhouse gases caused by deforestation and forest degradation, as well as payments for environmental services.

Another aim of the project is to strengthen the partnership between firms and forest business co-operatives and farmer groups in the supply chains for acacia and tung oil certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
