Overview of Partner Ship



The Forest Sector Support Program and Partnership (FSSP&P) was established on 12 November 2001.  In 2006 its institutional structure was revised to provide support to the forestry sector in Vietnam more effectively, focusing on supporting implementation of Viet Nam Forestry Development Strategy (VFDS, 2006-2020). Since then the Forest Sector Support Program and Partnership has been renamed the Forest Sector Support Partnership (FSSP). This change was in line with the original aim of the Partnership, which was to support the forestry sector following a programmatic approach, as well as consistent with more recent agreements, such as the Hanoi Core Statement.  Until now, after ten years of its operation, FSSP structure was further adjusted to better support the development of Viet Nam forestry in the period of 2011-2015. The current institutional structure of FSSP is presented in the figure 1.

The current FSSP institutional structure was reformulated with one set of interrelated Terms of Reference for its related institutions:

• The overall broad Partnership and its members, called FSSP Partners, open for voluntary participation of all stakeholders;
• A subset of the Partnership, called Partnership Steering Committee (PSC) Members, comprised of signatories of the FSSP Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) and Vietnamese representatives designated by MARD;
• Partnership Advisory Board (PAB) is an advisory unit of the Partnership. PAB may include members who are the acknowledged national and international experts in different areas related to forestry. PAB functions as an independent advisory unit to provide the PSC, Regional Forestry Networks, and The Forest Sector Support Partnership Coordination Office with professional advice and orientations for operation. PAB can provide recommendations on development orientations, important policies, issues of strategic importance to the forestry sector upon request of VNFOREST leadership.
• The Regional Forestry Networks (RFN), which are comprised of representatives of forestry provinces and local stakeholders participating in the Partnership. The Regional Forestry Networks have representatives in the PSC; and
• The Forest Sector Support Partnership Coordination Office (FSSP CO), which serves as the secretariat for the other Partnership institutions, and promotes coordination and information, and in collaboration with other relevant parties, helps to mobilize support for the sector.
