Key achievements and results of FY 2018-2019
Viet Nam is one of the most biologically diverse areas on the planet, supporting the livelihoods and well-being of millions of people in mainland South East Asia. Home to 16% of the world’s flora and fauna species, Viet Nam has an equally diverse landscape of mountain ranges, tropical rainforests, mangroves, dry forests, coasts, oceans, rivers and lakes. Its landscapes have been identified as belonging to part of the 200 Global ecoregions - the world’s most biologically important areas to conserve for future generations. However, many species are threatened or endangered due to habitat loss, poorly planned infrastructure, climate change, unsustainable farming methods and poaching.
In 1985, WWF began working on a national conservation strategy and since then, has worked closely with the Vietnamese Government and local partners on a diverse range of conservation issues, implementing numerous field and research activities, working to stop the degradation of Viet Nam’s natural environment and wildlife populations, boosting community livelihood and engagement, to achieve sustainable development goals and secure a future for nature and people.
The Annual Report is a selection of highlights of this year’s past major achievements and successes, all of which could not be completed without the notable contributions from our gracious network of partners and supporters.
