Tóm tắt: Established in 2006, Kien Giang BiosphereReserve (KGBR) boasts a very high biodiversity andtypical forest ecosystems. The challenge for the Reserve and Provincial managers is to balance economic development with conservation. Eighty per cent of the land areais less than one meter above sea level and therefore under threat from climate change, mainly sea level rise and storm influence. A Biosphere Reserve Management Board (BRMB) was set up by the Provincial People’s Committee (PPC) to advise provincial leaders on how to solve complex issues using integrated, cross sectoral management decisions. The use of cross-sectoral planning is a new concept being encouraged by the Government of Vietnam. A comprehensive capacity building program for key members of the BRMB has been underway for the past four years, with technical assistance from the “Conservation and Development of the Kien Giang Biosphere Reserve Project”, funded by AusAID and implemented by GIZ. This program has led to the implementation of several new and innovative management approaches that were developed through consultationwith a wide range of stakeholders in KGBR. For example, (1) Provincial Integrated Coastal Management Plan for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation; and (2) Management plan to harmonize and develop environmental protection for the unique, cultural and historical values of Dong Ho Lake.
