Inception Workshops: M&E for Payments for Environmental Services in Viet Nam

Hue City and Tam Ky, Viet Nam 13 to 15 March 2017

Local authorities, forest owners, and development partners met to initiate a new project to develop and test an M&E framework for payments for environmental services in Quang Nam and Thua Thien Hue provinces.

Inception workshops were held in both provinces with the aim of engaging local stakeholders and initiating discussions on key topics such as:

  • Objectives of the PFES M&E framework
  • Users of the framework
  • Specific contents of the framework
  • Pilot testing

Further meetings are planned on to explore each of these topics in more depth.

The GMS Core Environment Program has been supporting PFES in Viet Nam since 2014, including a recent technical review of M&E for PFES, which will provide the basis for the framework now being developed.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, CEP, and WWF are partnering on the initiative.
