IUCN has a long history in Viet Nam since it supported the government in the preparation of the first National Conservation Strategy in 1984. Since then, IUCN has made significant contributions to biodiversity conservation and environmental protection, particularly through the development of laws and policies. Increasingly, IUCN focuses on the barriers to policy implementation. To do so, we work with partners to both support and bring pressure to increase transparency and accountability of government. Our partners include the National Assembly, Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics and Public Administration, international businesses, and a new generation of local NGOs working on environmental issues of public concern.

IUCN Viet Nam works on the following thematic programmes: business and biodiversity, protected area and world heritage, marine and coastal ecosystems, water and wetlands and environmental governance.

Current projects implemented in Viet Nam include:

1. Build Resilience to Climate Change Impacts – Coastal Southeast Asia (BCR)
2. Mekong Water Dialogues (MWD)
3. Mangrove for the Future (MFF)
4. Mangroves & Markets (M&M)
5. CEPF Indo-Burma Biodiversity Hotspot
