Development of an Intergrated Land Use Strategy for Na-Nhan Commune, Dien Bien District, Dien Bien Province

In the context of integrated landscape management in rural areas, multi-stakeholder platforms are important means to contribute to achieving the goals of conservation, emission removals, livelihoods and agricultural production. Participatory planning and decision-making is an essential part of a governance mechanism desired by stakeholders in a landscape fraught with conflict of resource use and stakeholder interests. In this study, we conducted a stakeholder consultation workshop with 48 participants representing Dien Bien province and Na Nhan commune stakeholders, including the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD), Department of Natural Resource and Environment (DONRE), commune leaders, agriculture extension staff, environmental and cadastral staff, village heads and villagers.
