Improve the effectiveness of community conserved area management; sustain biodiversity values of local forest ecosystems, manage, protect and sustainably develop forests, and preserve ethnic minorities’ indigenous knowledge and non-physical culture values in Son La province.

from the funding of forest environmental services; (4) promoting agricultural livelihood
development and products under the forest canopy to improve living standards; and (5)
