HCM CITY — Airbus, the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Việt Nam (CCIFV) and local NGO Gaia Nature Conversation (Gaia), have jointly launched the "Community Forest" project in Đồng Nai Biosphere Reserve. The Community Forest project focuses on preserving biodiversity and wildlife in Việt Nam. Additionally, it seeks to support local communities living in the buffer zones of Đồng Nai Biosphere Reserve by regulating water sources and empowering livelihoods through their active participation in tree plantings. "The Community Forest project not only allows us to contribute to ecological preservation but also strengthens our ties with the local community and supports the Vietnamese government's sustainability efforts," Airbus Chief Representative for Việt Nam Hoàng Tri Mai said. The Đồng Nai Biosphere Reserve is one of the eleven UNESCO-recognised biosphere reserves in Việt Nam, covering an extensive area of 966,563ha and spanning territories belonging to five provinces - Đồng Nai, Bình Dương, Bình Phước, Lâm Đồng, and Đắk Nông.
