Do you know that HIV, Ebola, H5N1, SARS, etc., have all been proven to be zoonotic diseases, which originate from wildlife and transmit to humans?
From December 24-26th, 2019, in Gia Lai, PanNature in collaboration with the Vietnam Rubber Group and Vietnam Rubber Association organized a training course to introduce some sustainable forest certification programs to the representatives of nearly 20 rubber companies in the Central Highlands of Vietnam.
The 3-day-training provided initial insights about the characteristic and operation of certification programs such as FSC and PEFC, paved the way for the enterprises to enter sustainable rubber supply chain.
The companies’ representatives also took part in a field-trip at the sustainable planting and management model in Mang Yang forest (MDF Vinafor Company, H’ra Commune, Mang Yang District, Gia Lai Province) to better understand the sustainable management plans to apply to their business’ case. The training activities are under the Green Livelihoods Alliance (GLA) Program funded by IUCN Netherlands in Vietnam.
