Abstract: "Vietnam is among the ten countries in which biodiversity and forest are most rapidly disappearing. The problem is ongoing and exacerbated by the growing population and rapid economic development in Vietnam - a 'country in transition'. Forest land and forest resources management works in mountainous areas in Central Vietnam through management models such as afforestation yards, Protective Forest management boards, local administration units and households have been facing to implicit difficulties. Before 1975, there were common pool resources management models managed by communities based on regulations of villages, minorities group. Communities could partially solve contradictions; create livelihood; exploit and preserve the pools quite easily through those models of management. Those models encouraged communities who live based on natural resources, especially agro-forest land resources, to use traditional knowledge on sustainable forest management and enhancing livelihoods; creating community consensus. Building co-management regimes reflect the combination between formal laws of government and local in conventions play an important part in creating consensus and promoting sustainable development in upland areas."
