Overview of thesis

One-third of the world’s population is using forest products for their life. In particular, poor people living in or around of forest totally rely on forest resources. In Vietnam, the highest poverty rate is in the Northeastern area where a majority of ethnic groups live in or around the forest. This project focuses on three issues: (i) the types of direct and indirect activities undertaken by villagers to develop and manage forest resources as well as the roles of ethnicity and other influential factors on the development and management of forest resources near the villages; (ii) the activities that allow villagers to generate income from the forest and how it influences a household’s total income; and (iii) the effect of Payment for Environmental Services policies has on the livelihood of two regions (one receiving money from PES program and the other not receiving). To deal with these questions, qualitative approaches will be used to interview key persons and stakeholders from province, district, commune, village to farmer levels, and quantitative approaches will be used for householders by using questionnaires in 6 representative villages for Thai Nguyen and Bac Kan province.
