Overview of wetlands status in Viet Nam following 15 years of Ramsar Convention implementation
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This report has been developed through a collation and analysis of reliable, up-to-date data, using an interdisciplinary approach and also recognizing that wetland ecosystems should be conserved and developed in a sustainable manner. It consists of three parts and six annexes (summary of the Ramsar Convention; Viet Nam wetland classification by MARD; maps of wetlands in Viet Nam; wetland sites of biodiversity and environmental value in Viet Nam; economic valuation of selected wetlands in Viet Nam; and list of selected legal documents related to wetlands). It is anticipated that this report could serve as a valuable reference for managers, policy makers, researchers, post graduate students and others whose work relates to wetlands. It could also serve as a milestone marking processes and trends in conservation and management of wetlands in Viet Nam over the last 15 years, and presenting recommendations for the country's wetland management in the future.
