Vietnam's agriculture ministry has approved a US$123-million-plus project to restore and manage protective forests in the central region through 2021.
Covering 11 central provinces, the project will include the detection of unexploded ordnances, planting forests, managing forest projects and building related infrastructure like fire equipment, a report by Vietnam News Agency said Sunday.
More than $99.7 million of the investment will come from Japanese government official development assistance, according to the news agency.
Protective forests are the forests used for protecting water sources and preventing erosion as well as natural disasters.
