On 30 September, 2015, in Ha Noi, the workshop on completion and hand-over of TFF'achievements was held with the chairmanship of Dr. Hà Công Tuấn, Vice Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The Trust Fund for Forests (TFF) was established on the basis of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Government of Viet Nam and 4 representatives of the Government of Finland, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden in 2004. Since then, TFF has received 28.9 million Euro out of 29.04 Euro committed by these donors. With financial support from Finland (48%), the Netherlands (25%), Switzerland (21%) and Sweden (6%) and technical assistance from GIZ (Germany), TFF signed 40 grant agreements (including projects and non-projects) to mainly develop sectoral institution, policy and development strategy. TFF has always maintained overall objectives on sustainable forest management and biodiversity conservation in order to protect environment, promote livelihoods of local forest-dependent people and increase the contributions of the forest sector in the national economy and enhance the roles of forests in climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Over past 11 years, TFF has achieved comprehensive in constitutional and policy development, capacity building and implementation of new initiatives. The organization and management of TFF has considered valuable lesson-learnt for the establishment of Viet Nam Forest Protection and Development Fund (VNFF).

According to TFF’s roadmap, it has been merged into VNFF since 2014; however, it still maintained the management of on-going projects and also supported the implementation of 2 projects on developing database for forestry seeds and payments for forest environmental services. In the coming time, TFF’s achivements and lesson-learnts will be continuously shared and duplicated widely, especially during the process of REDD+ Fund establishment./.
