Economic reforms and mangrove forests in central Vietnam
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents a case study in the application of community based natural resource management (CBNRM) in regard to the specific experience of the management of mangrove forests in a commune in central Vietnam. This is accomplished by tracing the history of mangrove management over periods of political and economic reform, ultimately showcasing the power of CBNRM as a solution that more equitably distributes benefit and responsibility in relation to mangrove forests. Le argues that CBNRM more effectively manages resources by incorporating previously marginalized stakeholders and thereby encouraging them to demonstrate more wise conservation practices.
