About: ICEM provided the principle technical input to the IUCN and MARD initiated Protected Areas Policy Reform Project in Vietnam. The goals of the study were to examine experience gained from internationally funded projects focussing on protected areas in Vietnam and to place these recommendations within policy documents accessible to decision makers at all levels of Government. The study assessed how protected area management has been implemented over the last decade, the success of the various management models applied, and the level to which successful on-the-ground management has been taken up within policy and legislative development.
