Leaders' Seminar: A New Strategy for Forestry Development Cao Bang

The Leaders' Seminar of September 2002 was probably the most important single event in the Forestry Component of the Cao Bang Bac Kan Rural Development Project. It brought together key individuals from the disparate agencies with responsibilities in the forest sector, from within the Province and from the central MARD, to focus on identifying constraints and searching for solutions. These tasks were tackled by the concerned agencies themselves, so it could be described as a participatory approach. . Papers presented at the Seminar are included here in full. Together, they highlighted areas of concern for policy reform as well adjustments that could be made operationally without policy changes. The Working Groups set up by the Plenary developed recommendations that were acted upon by the responsible agencies as an on-going feedback. . The Seminar also began a process of increased dialogue among concerned agencies, which helped to create a working atmosphere of cooperation and coordination. . Also included in this report are an important background study by Mr Vu Liong of village forestry in Cao Bang, that provided field data in support of recommended reforms. Annex 2 is a Decision of MARD issued in January 2004, that all Provinces should embark on a systematic review of forestry development strategies to the year 2010.
