Market potential and resource management of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) in the northern uplands of Vietnam


Hilfiker, Karin; Zingerli, Claudia; Sorg, Jean-Pierre; Lüthi, Ruedi (2006). Market potential and resource management of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) in the northern uplands of Vietnam. Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Forstwesen (Swiss Forestry Journal), 157(2):49-56.

Abstract

Fairly all selected NTFPs of the upland commune Ngo Luong in northwest Vietnam reveal a high market potential including opportunities for sustainable resource management. In order to achieve win-win situations at the research site, management of specific NTFPs through intensification or diversification applied by single households or interest groups is discussed. Apart from better management practices the NTFP producers' position within the market chain should be strengthened by calling for extension trainings on marketing relevant features. These findings base on investigations of household income, NTFP extraction and market chains of economically valuable NTFPs.
