There are many pilot models of effective village community forest protection and management. Community forest is an important factor in the culture and livelihood of local people, and also plays a positive role in environmental protection.

This research was carried out in the seven villages of Son Linh commune, Huong Son district, Ha Tinh province, where the Kinh (Vietnamese ethnic majority) reside and maintain community forests. 41 people were involved in in-depth interviews and provided information via  semi-structured interviews.
