2.     Background information:

 

Justification:

          Bac Ha is an upland district located in the North East of Lao Cai province. It is adjancent to Si Ma Cai distric in the North, Ha Giang province and Bao Yen district in the East, Muong Khuong district in the West and Bao Thang district in South. The per capita income is 1,800,000 VND/per annual. Bac Ha is a extraordinarily disadvantaged district (20 out of 21 communes are clasified as disadvantaged communes of Vietnam which is beneficial for Policy No135). The economy is underdeveloped and material infrastructure is difficult. Number of poor household is 3301 out of 8307 (account for 39.74%).

          Bac Ha district has 20 communes and 1 town, 213 villages. The total population in the district is 45,982, in which 22,667 are women, 39,285 are ethnic minority people. The population density is 64 per km square. There are 17 ethnic groups living together with 40% is H’Mong ethnic group.

In the district, the production capacity and awareness on environmental preservation is limited. Burning forest callously for rice field has eroded the land, make local climate becomes harsh. Consequently, forest fire continuously happens and many rare species of animal is in danger of extinction.

 

Decription of location:

Natural area of Bac Ha district is 68,678 ha, in which 12,442 ha is agricultural land (account for 22.5%), forest land is 19.101 ha (accout for 27.8%), unused land is about 36,232 (account for 52.7%).

          The average height comparing with sea level is 1,000 m (the highest areas is 1,532m). The semi-temperate climate is coverage about 2/3 of the district, humidity is about 87%, average rainfall is 1,800 mm/year, average temperature is 18.30C.

Agriculture and Forestry are the main sectors of the local economy. In the agriculture, planting is the key production with rice, maize and cash tree such as tea, soybean. The fruit trees, which are suitable for local climate and land, are peach, pear, and plum. In the forestry, the main trees, which are planted, are pine, bead, mo tree, lat tree and tongqua tree.

With above-mentioned characteristics on economy, climate and land the local government put forward the policy of combination between agriculture and forestry. Planting fruit tree and reforesting aims to expand the area of source and protection forest, increase the coverage of tree on bare hill and unused land, develop economy so as to enhance living standard of local people.

In order to develop local economy and living standard for local people especially teachers and pupils, District Office of Education and Training find it necessary to plant fruit tree and reforest with advanced technology.

 

Beneficiaries:

Firstly, the direct beneficiaries are pupils, teachers and staff of District Education branch who are also the main human source of the project. Besides, the project also improves local environment and develops economy for people in the district to be beneficial.

Success of the project will contribute in educating local people to have habit of preserving environment, preventing flood and keep the clean and green environment in their action.

 

Relation of this project to LEF objectives:

          The project is in line with LEF objectives in the aspect of tree coverage on bare hill and unused land to preserve environment and make climate equable in locality. In addition the project contributes in increasing awareness of teachers, pupils and local people on environment preservation.

         

 

 

3.  Project description:

 

Overall goal:

          To expand the area of protection forest by planting tree on bare hills and unused land and increase awareness on environment preservation for teachers, pupils and local people in Bac Ha district, Lao Cai province.

 

Objectives:

Objective 1:

To plant fruit trees and timber trees on 23 ha of hilly and bare land of Bac Ha district (which accounts for 30% of total areas of the whole district).

Objective 2:

To raise awareness on preservation and proper use of natural resource and environment preservation for 85% of teachers and pupils from primary to high school level in the district.

·        After five years of planting and taking care tree, the output will be gained:

+ Annual output of fruit trees:

          (9,200 tree x 80% live tree) x 20 kg of fruit x 0.3 Euro/kg   = 44,160 Euro

These fruit will be harvested for at least 3 years, therefore:

3years x    44,160Euro   =   132.480 Euro.

+ Timber tree:

          (100.000 trees x 70% live trees) x 15 Euro/tree  = 1,050,000 Euro

Role of beneficiaries:

-         Teachers and pupils in the Bac Ha district will be the main human resource of the project. They will directly participate in planting and taking care trees.
