What We Do
At national level, PanNature has carried out policy initiatives to introduce and promote good governance and more transparency in natural resources sector through active participation in providing inputs and analysis of laws and legislation on environmental impact assessment, protected area management, benefit sharing and co-management in special-use forest, river basin management, mining and extractive industries, hydropower, environmental taxation, payment for environmental services and carbon finance mechanism, and litigation in environmental pollution disputes. We deal with these diverse thematic issues by facilitating involvement of external human resources and stakeholders through evidence-based policy research and analysis.
Strong media relations and communication efforts also complement policyfocused efforts as our findings and recommendations reach wider audience as well as target groups. The online news service website ThienNhien.Net has gained strong credentials among conservation community, government agencies and the mainstream media. As a trusted source, published articles and analysis have been reused and reproduced intensively by many institutions. In addition, PanNature’s leaders have been asked to provide public statements and comments on important conservation and environmental issues by the media agencies.
At local level, active engagement at the community and field level is also strength of PanNature in proving practical, science-based, and good models in natural resource governance and sustainable development. PanNature has carried out field operation in various sites in the Central Highlands and the Northern Mountains of Vietnam, where our team work closely with local partners and communities to pilot collaborative management of natural resources, biodiversity conservation, forest protection and sustainable livelihood measures.
