YênBái - In 2020, Yen Binh district had more than 3,400ha of forest granted with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certificates. The area is managed by 2,410 households in the communes of Xuan Long, Ngoc Chan, Cam An, Yen Thanh, Vinh Kien, and Han Da.
An officer of the provincial Forest Protection Department examines a forest area granted with the FSC certificate in Tan Nguyen commune.
The district is striving to expand this area by 3,000ha in 2021.
The Hoa Phat Industrial Co.

To carry out this plan, since the year’s beginning, the district’s forest protection force has provided training in afforestation and forest caring and exploitation for local residents so as to ensure that the practices comply with the 10 principles and 56 criteria for afforestation of the FSC.
