People benefit from Green Annamites Project

Nearly 30,000 people have benefited from improved natural resource management and biodiversity conservation thanks to the Green Annamites Project in Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue provinces.

The project has been sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2016-2020.

It also reduced the amount of carbon dioxide released per year into the atmosphere by 11.6 million tonnes  – 10 times the amount caused by Vietnam’s airline industry.

Director of the Green Annamites Project, Daniel Lopez, said: “Over the past four years, the USAID Green Annamites project has invested 23.9 million USD to help the provinces of Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue to protect the region’s globally significant biodiversity and help local and ethnic minority communities to diversify and improve their livelihoods.”
