    This report identifies the driving forces for reforestation in three villages of Northern Vietnam. Using an institutional analysis focused on the rules governing upland access and use, the authors assess the relative impact of state policies (reforestation programs and forestland allocation) on land use change. Findings show that the latter are indirectly responsible for reforestation, but not because of the incentives they provided. Instead, they disrupted the local rules governing annual crop cultivation and grazing activities leading to the end of annual cropping.

Numerous initiatives already exist in the form of codes of practice, criteria and indicators, and certification schemes in the countries of South East Asia, but to date such guidelines and standards have been vague and have lacked quantitative targets.

    The CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) is a multi-institutional research for development program

    that seeks to create and disseminate international public goods to improve the productivity of water in river basins in

    ways that are pro-poor, gender equitable and environmentally sustainable. In doing so, CPWF contributes to efforts by

    the global community to ensure that global diversions of water to agriculture are maintained at the level of the year

    2000.
