Mapping the potential for REDD+ to deliver biodiversity conservation in Viet Nam. A preliminary analysis
SNV’s Multiple Benefits REDD project, in collaboration with UNEP-WCMC, has conducted an initial spatial analysis to explore biodiversity benefits and risks from REDD+ in Vietnam. Mapping the potential for multiple benefits, such as biodiversity conservation value, can help in REDD+ planning, informing the selection of locations for REDD+ activities. This report provides worked examples showing how multiple benefits can be incorporated into spatial planning for REDD+ at the national level in the specific case of Vietnam.
The maps illustrating this summary report were selected from a series of over 40 maps produced by the study. The maps presented here are made available to national and international stakeholders for immediate use in planning for REDD+ demonstration activities at the sub-national level. It is hoped that the example maps presented here stimulate further analysis in support of Vietnam’s National REDD+ Action Programme.
