II. PROJECT START-UP EXPERIENCES:
With professional work experience on forest protection and conservation in the whole country and forest rangers staff who have professional skills on forestry and project implementation that has been highly appreciated by sponsors (such as PARC, VCF projects, etc.), CBBC Project has been launched and implemented as planned.
CBBC Project has been implemented under direct management of FPD leaders and the Project Management Board. One of the most important factors to speed up the progress is that FPD officers have been seconded and worked actively with other Departments within MARD such as Planning, Finance, and Construction Management Departments to develop a workplan, financial plan and procurement plan for the whole project lifetime and for year 2007.
FPD leaders and the Project Mangement Board have mobilized all project staff to solve the problems related to project start-up. Project Office has tried to speed up the consultant recruitment process, the development and approval of overall workplan and procurement plan. Moreover, the project staff has been in close cooperation with TFF and others stakeholders to overcome all constrains during project implementation.
III. REASONS OF THE TRAINNING PROGGAME:
According to the Law on Forest Protection and Development, forest ranger force is responsible for law enforcement on forest management and protection. The forest ranger force shall be organized in a unified system consisting of: The central forest rangers, province, district, community with aim of forest management and protection in the whole country. Forest rangers must have high professional skills on forest management and protection and law enforcement. However, forest ranger force often faces following difficulties:
- Forest areas often locate in remote areas, accessibility is still a problem.
- Forest rangers at village do not have the same level of knowledge. Few forest rangers have university degrees or/and lack of practical experiences. As a result, they find difficult in advising community leaders on forest management, development of action plan and land use planning.
- Most forest rangers are Kinh people who do not have full knowledge of traditions and customs of ethnic minorities. When Kinh forest rangers work in remote areas, local people are ethnic people so they have difficulty in providing information of forest protection, forest fire control as well as communications, guidelines and legal documents for local residents.
- Trainning activities and capacity building for forest rangers have not been officialised.
- There has no formal training curricula for management officers at present. Almost all of forest rangers alter graduating from university perform their job without proper guidlines and documents to develop field skills.
- Forest rangers are the law enforcement force but are not strongly supported by others agencies as police. Therefore they have limited cooperation and capacity for law enforcement.
In short, at present there is no formal training curiculum for management officers and technical staff in protected areas for National Park and nature reserve management. Eventhough many forest rangers completed university, they have not been provided field skills. Furthermore, training courses are limited for staff of other agencies related to forest management and conservation. In addition, another constrain related to training programmes is financial limitation.
For this reason, CBBC project focuses on curricula development and pilot curricula for managers and other staff at central and local level on law enforcement and conservation in Viet Nam with an aim to improve capacity in forst management and conservation.
At present, great number of related legal documents have been promulgated but there has been no institutionalized training programmes to build capacity for forest rangers and others agencies on law enforcement and strengthening forest protection and conservation in Viet Nam.
