Green OCOP program : Value chains for Non Timber Forest Products

Tay Giang district, Quang Nam province, Vietnam. May 2020. Forest ecosystems, along with their fauna and flora, can only be protected and coexist sustainably when local communities living near forests and / or dependent on forests improve their livelihoods and income in a sustainable and environmental-friendly direction.
The USAID Green Annamites project has been successful in supporting rural communities and small private sector companies to join the One Community One Product (OCOP) program promoted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, MARD, particularly in the Quang Nam province, where the Project has worked with ethnic minorities living in and around forested areas to develop value chains for non-timber forest Products (NTFP). This merge between the OCOP program and USAID conservation-friendly Value chains created the “Green OCOP”, as value a chain approach that contributes to sustainable natural resource management and biodiversity conservation, while improving rural income and helping to achieve three key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as SDG1 (poverty), SDG8 (comprehensive and sustainable economic growth) and SDG 15 (sustainable use of terrestrial resources and prevention of biodiversity loss).
