HSBC video productionCALL FOR BID (HSBC Video Production)
WWF-Viet Nam, located at No.6, lane 18 Nguyen Co Thach street, Nam Tu Liem, Ha Noi, Viet Nam would like to invite you to bid for "The video production on HSBC/WWF community-based freshwater resources conservation and management in Vietnam" as follow:
1. Background information
WWF was one of the first international non-government organizations working in Vietnam and works closely with the Vietnamese government on the diverse range of environmental issues and implemented field activities across the country. WWF is recognized as the leading conservation organization in the country, strongly rooted in Vietnam, bringing solutions and support to government and other key players to meet the country’s development challenges.
The Mekong Delta has recently been dubbed as a "biological treasure trove" which plays an important role in the sustainable security of Vietnam, particularly as it relates to food security and the national economy. However, increasing human demand for natural resources, particularly tourism demand, encroaching land conversion to agriculture production, coupled with agricultural intensification, has significantly reduced the extent of natural and semi-natural habitats in the delta.
Tram Chim National Park (TCNP) – the 2,000th Ramsar site of the world – represents the last remaining one percent of the Plain of Reeds in existence and is home to over 100 species of vertebrates, 40 species of fish and 147 species of waterfowl. Since its designation as a Ramsar Site, the number of visitors in TCNP has grown dramatically and reached over 183,000 in 2016. Nevertheless, the current management capacity of local communities hasn’t been compatible to provide services to a great number of visitors while preserving natural resources for local communities as well as protecting the Park from overuse.
WWF has strong historical involvement in the Mekong Delta, working to engage local communities in the conservation of natural resources for the benefit of biodiversity values and sustainable development. In the most recent collaboration in the fifteen-year partnership with HSBC, WWF has been working on freshwater conservation in five river basins, including the Mekong’s river basin in Vietnam, as part of the HSBC Water Programme over the last five years, to ensure the sustainability of this valuable resource for communities and businesses.
Building off this successful work carried out under the global freshwater partnership to date, WWF-HSBC have developed and executed a 2-year project which contributes to the following goal: Communities in key freshwater landscapes are engaged in freshwater conservation through education, citizen science, and improved management, enhancing environmental, social and economic benefits.
