CDSSEA 14: Gender Participation in Forest Resource Management

Benefit Sharing Mechanisms in Thuong Nhat Commune, Bach Ma National Park Buffer-zone, Thua Thien Hue, Vietnam

This book aims to assess how the Co Tu peoples, an ethnic minority living in the central region of Vietnam, benefit from participation in a Benefit Sharing Mechanism which allows legal collection of non-timber forest products inside Special Use Forests. The research also examines social and cultural influences which impact on cultural harvesting and gender relations in the commune and households, particularly in  regards to local rights and roles in harvesting the products.
