UN-REDD Programme Success Story

Collaborative research generates country-specific tree allometric equations in Vietnam.

A recently launched UN-REDD Programme Vietnam Success Story focuses on the outcomes of in-country coordination that improves Vietnam’s forest biomass assessment.

In forestry, allometry refers to statistical relationships between various characteristics of tree size (such as diameter and tree height) and more difficult-to measure variables (such as volume and biomass). Allometric equations can be used to assess many forest services such as timber production, and are also used in climate change mitigation efforts.

This Vietnam Success Story takes a look at the process that lead to the completion and application of Vietnam-appropriate allometric equations that will help increase the credibility of the calculation of forest carbon stocks in this country.

Read the complete Vietnam Success Story in English, French or Spanish.
