How to develop forest sustainably, adapt and reduce the impacts of climate change was discussed at a forum held in the central highland province of Lam Dong on July 18.

The event attracted nearly 200 scientists, researchers, policy-makers and businesses representatives who have directly managed forest protection in five central highland provinces.

The event offered an opportunity for participants to share forest protection and climate change adaptation experiences.

Addressing the forum, National Agriculture Promotion Centre Director Dr. Phan Huy Thong, emphasized that Vietnam is one of five nations which have been hardest hit by climate change. Therefore, forestry development has played an important role in protecting the environment, conserving biodiversity and reducing poverty.

During the forum, delegates also shared some solutions for climate change response and experiences from the UNs Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries.
