Abstract

Vietnam is a country with high levels of biodiversity, a large and growing population, and experiencing rapid transformations from a developing country to a mid-level economy. This chapter looks at the complexities of managing natural resources and development in northern Vietnam with specific reference to issues related to climate change and the renovation of Vietnam’s economy over the past 30 years. The chapter draws from the other chapters in this volume to discuss the challenges related to forestland allocation policies, governance of natural resources, intricacies of payment for environmental services, and ends by discussing some of the issues regarding the analysis of these situations in the complex socioecological systems that are found in the lowlands, midlands, and uplands of northern Vietnam. Recommendations based on the findings of the chapters in this volume are made with specific focus on improving the management of the natural resources base.
