Coastal forest protection and development in Vietnam
Coastal forests, especially mangroves, play a very important role in the protection and life of coastal communities which are considered the most vulnerable areas to the impacts of nature, especially in the context of climate change. These forests provide a range of ecosystem services that help filter water, stabilize the coast, conserve biodiversity and play an important role in the tourism and entertainment industries, etc. However, this ecosystem is one of the most vulnerable ecosystems due to human impact and climate change. The Prime Minister issued Decision No. 1029/QD-TTg dated July 13, 2017 approving the investment policies for the project "Improving resilience of vulnerable coastal communities to climate change – related impacts in Viet Nam" funded by Green Climate Fund (GCF)through UNDP in Vietnam.
