Provincial REDD+ Action Plans (PRAPs) provide a basis for consultation, planning, implementation and monitoring of REDD+ policies and measures within a particular province, and for mobilising and coordinating the utilisation of resources from different sources for these policies and measures, contributing to overall REDD+ and forest protection and development efforts in the country.

National guidelines[1] on the development of PRAPs require provinces to ensure that the PRAPs are consistent with the Forest Protection and Development Plan for the period 2011-2020. These guidelines set out the expected scope, stakeholders, contents, implementation arrangements, resourcing, and monitoring and evaluation of the PRAPs, including a standardised template.

PRAPs are developed based on analysis of direct and indirect drivers of deforestation and degradation as well as barriers to enhancing forest carbon reserves and identification of areas with the potential to implement REDD+ activities.  Provincial People’s Committees are responsible for appraisal and approval of the PRAPs, ensuring consistency with national forest strategies, plans and programmes. In addition, the PRAP guidelines note an expected contribution to mobilising resources for and implementing the National REDD+ Programme (NRAP)[2].

For PRAPs that were adopted during the development of the current NRAP (2017), it is anticipated that they will be progressively harmonised with the NRAP, integrating key contents relevant to the specific provincial context, needs and challenges.

As of October 2018, 19 of Viet Nam’s 63 provinces and centrally-administered cities have approved PRAPs.
