Vietnam prepares for UNESCO title (August 01, 2003)

Phu Quoc island is expected to be dubbed a "biosphere reserve" soon, the first step to world heritage listing.
A campaign to establish a "biosphere reserve" in the southern province of Kien Giang, as a lead up to gaining UNESCO world heritage site listing, is to commence soon.

An understanding to seek Kien Giang’s listing was reached by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO) Vietnam committee, the Man and the Biosphere of Vietnam (MAB), and Kien Giang’s local administration at a meeting on Sunday.

UNESCO’s biosphere reserves are designated areas where integrated management of land, water and biodiversity take place, in the midst of sustainable development.

Experts from UNESCO Vietnam and MAB Vietnam recently returned from field trips to Phu Quoc island, considered the core of the campaign, and nearby smaller islands, and confirmed that Phu Quoc met the requirements to become a UNESCO world heritage site.

Phu Quoc island is home to intact rainforests, marshes and cajeput forests, seaweed and coral reefs, along with many endangered species that are included in Vietnam’s conservation Red Book.

The Phu Quoc national park, a nature reserve in Tho Chu island, the Ha Tien marshes, the limestone mountains and mangrove forests in Kien Luong, and the An Thoi and Nam Du group of islands all enhance the campaign’s potential. (VNS)
