Mapping Forests - The Path to Green Growth
A vibrant forestry industry can mean a brighter future for nations that pursue modern, sustainable forestry management practices: more and better jobs; lower environmental impact; a carbon neutral industry; and a renewable, sustainable approach to economic development. Viet Nam is receiving help to achieve these very goals from Finland's government and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. In March 2011, these partners launched Vietnam's National Forest Assessment program, or NFA, to establish an up-to-date and accurate means of assessing the state of Viet Nam's forest resources.
