In the 1990s, WWF began working on a national conservation strategy; and since then has worked closely with the Vietnamese government on a diverse range of environmental issues and implemented field activities across the country.
Based in Hanoi, the WWF Indochina Programme expanded its operations into Cambodia [since 1993] and Lao PDR [since 1997]. In 2006 WWF-Thailand joined WWF Indochina to form the WWF-Greater Mekong. And in 2014, WWF-Greater Mekong opened the 5th office in Yangon, Myanmar. WWF-Vietnam is the implementing arm for projects in Vietnam.
WWF-Vietnam’s Mission and Vision
- Humanity’s footprint stays within Vietnam’s capacity to sustain the full diversity of species and ecosystems, and the key services they provide, contributing to a more secure and sustainable future.
- The ecological integrity and biodiversity of Vietnam’s priority areas are maintained and restored, playing a critical role in conserving the overall ecological integrity of the Greater Mekong.
