Vietnam - Lao PDR Bilateral Exchange Meeting Brief

Under the Vietnam UN-REDD Programme, an exchange was organised between Viet Nam and Lao PDR on the developments in the forestry sector particularly those related to REDD+ and transboundary displacement issues. Both countries are engaged in REDD+ and this represents an opportunity to place forests and land use on a more sustainable footing, and provide incentives for doing so. But, illegal and/or unsustainable logging and timber trade between countries can undermine REDD+ efforts. This bilateral exchange thus encouraged discussions on the potential domestic and cross-border impact and risks, and identified mechanisms for monitoring of risks. (Luang Prabang, Lao PDR, May 2018)
