Planning of the integration process of the Trust Funds for Forests (TFF) into the Vietnamese National Funds for Forests (VNFF) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) in Vietnam

The Government of Vietnam tends to merge the two Funds into one organization to give a better platform for future project administration and funds allocation for different donors. The consultant mission had to evaluate the conditions to form one institute and to develop a roadmap for the necessary steps for this integration process. Interviews with all involved stakeholders like the donor community, the staff of the organisations and the project partners in the regions were held.
