Ca Mau (VNA) – The southernmost
province of Ca Mau has actively devised comprehensive measures to preserve and
develop its 92,000 ha of concentrated forests.

Focus has been put on publicity campaigns to
enhance the awareness of forests protection among communities while improving
forest management.

Efforts have also been undertaken to better
forests planning and development by 2020, and to plant more forests,
particularly cajuput and coastal protection forests.

Enterprises have been encouraged to invest in
production forest planting and wood processing factories for exports.

Management of mangrove forests, including
coastal protection forests, has been strengthened with focus on fire prevention
and salt intrusion.

The locality has also made planning on
residential areas in the forests, to ensure stable living condition for local
residents while protecting and developing the forests.

Ca Mau is home to 92,000 hectares of
concentrated forests, accounting for 77 percent of the Mekong Delta region’
forest coverage.

The province’s forest coverage includes 54,000
hectares of mangrove in

Nam Can, Ngoc Hien, Dam Doi and Phu Tan
districts; and the 37,000-ha U Minh Ha cajuput forest that spreads across U
Minh, Tran Van Thoi, and Thoi Binh.
