Some 1,625 people have engaged in the Hạ Long-Cát Bà Alliance and 109 people have benefited from sustainable management and conservation of resources with the project’s support.
This was announced by Nguyễn Thu Huệ, director of Centre for Marine Life Conservation and Community Development (MCD) at a meeting on Thursday held in the central province of Quảng Ninh to review the Hạ Long-Cát Bà Alliance.
The three-year project, with financial support worth US$970,000 from USAID, was established to build a partnership among government, businesses and community leaders to preserve and protect Hạ Long Bay and Cát Bà Archipelago.
The project has trained 842 people on topics related to natural resource management and biodiversity conservation. In addition, it helped 206 others access modern technology and new management methods, Huệ said.
