With financial support from the Embassy of New Zealand in Vietnam, through the Manaaki New Zealand Alumni Scholarship Fund (MNZAF), Ms. Ngan Le, one New Zealand Alumnus, together with her non-government organization - the Center for People and Nature (PanNature), organized a series of training sessions to "Promoting the role of indigenous women in farming and eco-friendly agribusiness" from May to October 2022. The targeted beneficiaries are 15 Thai and Hmong women who are members of the Xuan Nha Commune Women's Union currently participating in an existing model or planning to do business with organic agricultural products in Xuan Nha commune.
We are profoundly saddened to announce the passing of Dr. Dao Trong Hung, who was chairman of the Governance Board of PanNature. He died on 23 April 2020 at the age of 67.
Dr. Hung has been an active supporter of PanNature since our early days. With his lifelong experience and dedication in research, teaching, and expertise in the fields of biodiversity conservation and natural resources management, he has greatly contributed to the development of PanNature even before accepting the role of board chair in 2017.
We would like to share our condolences to Dr. Hung’s family. This is a great loss for his family, the Institute of Ecological and Biological Resources where he worked, and PanNature.
