Name Re-inventing forestry agencies: institutional restructuring of forestry agencies in Vietnam since 1994

This study aims to provide an understanding of the changing roles of the state forestry agencies in Viet Nam since 1994 and the process of re-aligning their organizational structures to meet new social demands. The study is based on review of existing literature and policy papers, as well as primary data collected through interviews with relevant agency staff at national and local levels. The analysis focuses on the implications of the establishment in 1995 of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) and forestry sub-departments and forest protection sub-departments at the provincial level. Decentralization trends in forest management since the early 1990s are also covered.
