Field Dialogue on REDD+ Benefit Sharing in Vietnam

24 September 2013 to 27 September 2013
Field Dialogue on REDD+ Benefit Sharing in Vietnam

Vietnam was chosen as the first field dialogue country given its extensive experiences with benefit distribution in the forest sector and the advanced thinking on how to link those experiences with REDD+ Benefit Sharing at national and sub-national levels. The Vietnam Dialogue offered a platform to take stock of the current status of benefit sharing in Vietnam, share the experiences with other REDD+ countries and identify key ways forward towards equitable, effective and efficient REDD+ benefit sharing both in Vietnam and internationally.

Participants spent two-days in a field site where they discussed  how benefit sharing mechanisms are designed and implemented with local communities, researches, companies and government representatives. Based on the field trip experience as well as a background paper that introduced the context of Benefit Sharing discussions in Vietnam, dialogue participants took part in two-day facilitated discussions in both plenary and small groups. 

The REDD+ Benefit Sharing Dialogue was funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety’s International Climate Initiative and co-organized with International Union for Conservation of Nature and The Center for People and Forests.
