Supporting the implementation of Marine resource management project in Nui Chua National Park

Hue Thi Huynh

The internship was designed to help introduce Fauna & Flora’s work and mission in the local communities, assist capacity building for stakeholders and research on the local communities’ social background, and support the preparation for the assessments of the NCNP’s marine biodiversity. There were activities organised to supporting the organisation of capacity training building courses for NCNP, supporting local community outreach and conducting socio-economic research, and supporting conducting research on biodiversity and marine resources. The last objective - assisting in promoting sustainable marine tourism practice - has yet to be fulfilled due to untimely schedule of the implementation of the project during the internship.

Final Report

"With the support from the internship, Fauna & Flora has been able to build a strong relationship with the local partners. Fauna & Flora has opened a permanent site office in Nui Chua National Park, which is expected to help accelerate the speed of project implementation furthermore".
