Provincial Workshop on Benefit Sharing  

Provincial Workshop on Benefit Sharing

Based on current developments at the national level, in particular concerning the ambitions to revise Decision 178 on benefit sharing, the Peoples' Committee of Dak Lak province has assigned DARD to initiate a process to accomplish a revision of associated provincial policies. Against the background of the planned forest land allocation in 20061, a revision of the provincial benefit sharing policy, comprising the elaboration of a draft concept for practical benefit sharing and the testing in selected pilot sites, has gained priority. The Provincial Working Group on Community Forestry has organized three meetings in 2005 where several experts presented the findings of their research and made suggestions about the revision of the provincial benefit sharing policy. However, despite a progressive attitude and willingness to make amendments, none of the suggestions that have been made has been evaluated as feasible by the officials from various provincial departments (e.g. FD, DARD, FPD). . Therefore, the project has been kindly asked to provide assistance for the organization of a provincial workshop on benefit sharing, the most important task being to elaborate and present various options for benefit sharing, enabling province officials to make informed decisions about the selection of options for pilot testing in order to arrive at a draft concept on benefit sharing for piloting in Dak Lak. . The task was accomplished by the consultant in close collaboration with Assoc. Prof. Dr. Bao Huy and draws partially on presentations that have been prepared for a ToT on CFM facilitated on behalf of ETSP in 2005. In the following, a brief overview over the limitations of the current benefit sharing policy and principles for the elaboration of practical benefit sharing are presented. Several options for benefit sharing, - as prepared for the workshop - are discussed before the results of the workshop, namely the selection of options for piloting, as well as associated action plans, are presented.
