Location of Services: Hanoi, Vietnam
Date(s) of performance of Services: April-July, 2020
Report to: Nguyen Thi Ha, Program Officer, LEA team

I. Background

Vietnam’s economy has performed well in 2019, with GDP expanding by an estimated 6.8 percent, public debt reduced by almost 8 percentage point of GDP since 2016, and a trade balance surplus for the fourth year in a row. These results are remarkable in the context of a slowing global economy1. Along with that growth is the formation and development of small and medium-sized public enterprises in a number of industries including: agriculture, forestry, transportation, import and export. Beside the positive impacts it has on economic growth, the development of these businesses also brings negative impacts to the environment in general, and conservation of wildlife species in particular.

In order to conduct the situational analysis and assess impacts of development of these above mentioned enterprises in the period of 2014-2019 on wildlife conservation, WCS proposes to work with a partner who has extensive experience and expertise in the field of data to gather, select, and extract companies’ listing information based on criteria set by WCS (see table 1.1). The collected information will then be entered this information into the data collection sheet designed and provided by WCS. Based on this information, WCS will analyze and evaluate on the situation of businesses developments and registrations of targeted sectors and possibly assess its impacts on wildlife conservation.
