QĐND - Thursday, September 20, 2007, 22:5 (GMT+7)
A seminar to look for measures to harmonise ecological preservation and development in Viet Nam
was held at the Cat Tien National Park
in southern Dong Nai province on September 19.
As part of a project to preserve and develop the Mekong River basin, the seminar drew the participation of experts from Viet Nam’s major national parks and natural reserves, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), BirdLife International and the World Conservation Union (IUCN).
The experts will pool their experience and initiatives in order to find out effective measures to drive back poverty and minimise threats to the country’s ecosystem.
The seminar was organised by the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) with financial support from the MacArthur Foundation.
