Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Implement sustainable forest management.

Improve the quality of poor natural forests.

Implement afforestation and reforestation measures, focusing on large timber plantations.

Prevent forest deforestation and degradation.

Protect, restore, plant and improve the quality of coastal forests, including mangroves, especially in coastal estuaries and the Mekong and Red River deltas.

Planned Nature-based Action in Adaptation Plan

Forest coverage increases to 45%.

Area of protection forest in coastal areas is increased to 380,000 hectares, including 20,000 to 50,000ha of additional mangrove planting.
