Lam Dong unveils its go - green plan


   More than 596,600 ha has been zoned off for forests in a total area of 977,219 ha in Lam Dong. The forests play an important role in protecting the environment and regulating water resources from rivers, springs, lakes in the province and the rest of the region.

Priority will be given for allocating forest areas to ethnic and poor households without land and local communities to protect

   Lately, Lam Dong Province People’s Committee unveiled a plan for the “Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through efforts to reduce deforestation and forest degradation, sustainable management of forest resources, conservation and enhancement of forest carbon stocks” implemented through 2020 with the cost around VND 1.75 trillion (US$ 83 million).

   Its main targets are to increase the province’s forest cover and reduce CO2 emissions by 2 million tonnes a year, equal to 27% of the emissions by the forestry sector; from then, improve the livelihoods of families living near forests to reduce their exploitation of the forests; besides, provide companies with financial and technical assistance to manage the forests.

   To achieve the targets, Tay Nguyen (Central Highlands) province will adjust the zoning of 3 types of forests – special use, protective and production, further limit switching of special use and protective forests to other purposes. In addition, the province will replant forests and afforest barren lands and lands where commercial plants had been grown.

   This year, for instance, Dam Rong, Lam Ha, Lac Duong and Da Hoai districts will grow 260 ha of forest on barren land. As planned, the province will plant an average of 1,070 ha of forests a year on barren lands in the period of 2016 - 2020.
