The primary aim of this small-scale Clean Development Mechanism project is the reforestation of bare and bush lands in the Cao Phong District. The project is implemented by local communities under the management of the Forest Development Fund, a social fund established by the Cao Phong District People’s Committee and the Vietnam Forestry University. This AR-CDM project was formulated under the JICA development study "Capacity Building for AR-CDM Promotion in Vietnam" (Oct. 2006 - Mar. 2009). Beginning 2009, the project will be implemented by local communities under the management of the Forest Development Fund. Honda Vietnam provided VND 3.5 billion to the Fund for project implementation from 2008-2011.
