The watershed area of Hoa Binh Dam, Hoa BinhProvince.

Project Duration

From 1st October 2003 to 30th September 2008.

Sets of technology for natural forest rehabilitation developed by the Project are applied by policy makers and by end users.

Expected Outputs

1. Information on technology, results from other projects, manuals, and valuable experiences regarding natural regeneration, soil conservation measures, upland farming, forestry related policies and people’s participation in watershed area is compiled and systemized.

2. Techniques on silvicultural measures for natural forest rehabilitation, native species seedling production, and farmland management applicable in the field are developed through research and on-farm trials.

3. Monitoring and evaluation system for the overall project implementation and for the respective research and trial activities are established and implemented.
