Karst, conservation and local livelihoods.
Established in 2004, PRCF Vietnam works in the northern Vietnam highland limestone forests, particularly in the Na Hang/Ba Be Limestone Forest Complex. This is a global biodiversity hotspot rich in rare and endemic species. A number of Vietnamese ethnic minority groups inhabit the area, including Dzao, H’mong, Nung, and Tay.
We currently operate programs in five protected areas and forest locations, seeking collaborative solutions to conservation and sustainable livelihoods. This is done through community-based management approaches that promote local people’s involvement in natural resource planning and decision making while addressing important biodiversity conservation needs.
Furthermore, with Vietnam being identified as a country particularly vulnerable to climate change, the PRCF has started activities to support community-based climate change adaptation, targeting households within and adjacent to protected areas.
