Last week CIRD participated in a mid-term reflection and strategy workshop for the project ‘Co-operation in Providing information, Critique and Appraisal of the Draft Vietnamese Forestry Law.’ The workshop was held by the Mekong Region Land Governance Project (MRLG) which supports the project through the MRLG Innovation Fund.
The project is being implemented by the Forest Land Alliance (FORLAND) represented by CIRD, in partnership with the Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA) and the Committee of Science, Technology and Environment of Vietnamese National Assembly (CSTE). Other members of FORLAND also participated in the workshop, including Professor Đặng Hùng Võ.
The workshop was an important opportunity to reflect on the achievements so far, as the Forestry Law was recently approved by the National Assembly. Participants in the workshop considered what we could learn from the project so far and identified next steps for the project.
