The main part of the report introduces the Central Truong Son, looks at previous data gathering exercises in the area and then suggests a framework for a monitoring and evaluation system. A series of indicators are proposed along with possible sources of information and, where necessary, the steps needed to build capacity to measure particular indicators. The report also outlines steps needed to analyse data and lays out a possible format for an Annual State of the Central Truong Son report. A final section lays out the steps needed to implement the monitoring and evaluation system. The background report is supplemented by a series of annexes, which provide more detail on how some of the indicators might be measured, including draft questionnaires relating to stakeholder perceptions, poverty alleviation and biodiversity and sustainable forest management, along with a proposal for a regular transect along the Ho Chi Minh highway.
