In Vietnam, IDH’s Initiative for Sustainable Landscape (ISLA) and three of its commodity supply chain programs (the Tea, Spices, and Coffee programs) work in the Central Highlands region, with a focus on Lam Dong and Dak Lak provinces. The Central Highlands region is the agricultural power house of Vietnam and a key producer of coffee, pepper, tea, fruits & vegetables, flowers, rubber, and cashew. The agricultural success in the region is dependent on a number of important natural resources. The highly fertile land, a quarter of which is basalt, is ideal for growing perennial crops. To achieve economic growth based on the agricultural sector while protecting the natural resources on which this growth is dependent, ISLA convenes the public and private sector and co-invests in the development, implementation, and scaling up of sustainable agriculture and natural resource management concepts.
The Vietnam National Green Growth Strategy has been approved in Vietnam since 2012, targeting to a low carbon economy and to enrich natural capital. Based on this national Green Growth Strategy, some provinces have developed their own provincial Green Growth Action Plan (GGAP) to provide the overall framework for green growth, low emissions development and sustainable agriculure production and forest management. For Central Highlands, so far only Daklak and Kon Tum provinces have already developed a GGAP. Recognizing the importance of a GGAP in shaping the green pathway including how how to achieve optimal growth of the agricultural sector while safeguarding natural resources such as water, forest, and soils for sustainable economic development in the next 10-20 years for public and private stakeholders, Lam Dong province has requested IDH to support the development of its provincial GGAP for 2018 -2020 with vision to 2030. Therefore, IDH is seeking a consultancy team to support province in development of Provincial Green Growth Action Plan.
