Introducing the agroforestry development program, Harm Haverkort, manager of Acorn progranne in Asia Pacific said, Acorn and Agriterra are collaborating to develop a proposal for multi-stakeholder cooperation and consultation in promoting the agroforestry model, which aims to address challenges posed by climate change.

This initiative aims to introduce and seek collaboration opportunities to promote sustainable forest management and climate change adaptation efforts in Vietnam.

Acorn and Agriterra in Vietnam wish to partner with the VCA regarding the participation of cooperatives and their members in this program.

Bao spoke highly of the feasibility of the program, saying that this is a meaningful for Vietnamese farmers, especially in terms of sustainable forest management and climate change response.

He proposed the two sides enhance coordination and jointly develop plans for implementing specific tasks, thus achieving relevant agreements to promptly put the program into practice in the near future.
