Redefining Diversity and Dynamics of Natural Resources Management in Southeast Asia, Volumes 1-4brings together scientific research and policy issues across various topographical areas in Asia to provide a comprehensive overview of the issues facing the region.

Upland Natural Resources and Social Ecological Systems in Northern Vietnam, Volume 2, provides chapters on natural resource management in northern Vietnam tied together by the concept that participatory local involvement is needed in all aspects of natural resource management. The volume examines planning for climate change, managing forestland, alleviating food shortages, living with biodiversity, and assessing the development projects and policies being implemented. Without the involvement of local communities, households, and ultimately individual people, the needed action will not be effectively taken.

Upland Natural Resources and Social Ecological Systems in Northern Vietnam, Volume 2, goes beyond just Northern Vietnam to address the issue of transboundary natural resource management an issue that Vietnam is dealing with in its relations with northern neighbor, China, and western neighbor, Laos as well as the transboundary water governance between Pakistan and India in south Asia, with the hope that some of the lessons learned may one day be useful in the case of Vietnam and its neighbors.



  • Provides a multi-disciplinary case study into a complex environmental situation involving government institutions, planning, and practices, using northern Vietnam as the focus
  • Covers the issues of natural resource management and biodiversity in depth using international case studies
  • Provides examples of measuring the potential climate change impacts on food security in agricultural regions
  • Examines topics such as planning for climate change, managing forestland, alleviating food shortages, living with biodiversity, and assessing development projects and policies
