The government is discussing the proposal for a pilot programme of this plan, under which the country’s 100 largest emitters (cement manufacturers and coal-fired power plants) would pay forest communities and landowners to protect and expand forests.  

Using as model the rationale of the 'payment for forest ecosystem services', Viet Nam is about to launch a new programme requiring large emitters to pay for conservation and restoration efforts by putting a price in the carbon dioxide emissions, which will be directed straight to forest conservation (Clouse, 2020).
