Wetlands protection and management in Vietnam

The Legal Division of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, Vietnam with the assistance of IUCN conducted a recent review of current legislation on wetlands in the country. Its aim was to provide the goverment with a basis for developing effective laws and regulations on wetland use. As Vietnam does not have any legal framework for wetland protection yet, it is proposed that the goverment promulgate a degree on the protection and management of wetlands.
