There is currently an ongoing negative trend of natural resource status in the world in general and Vietnam in particular. Natural resources of Vietnam is currently reducing in both quantity and quality. The main reason leading to this situation is due to the lack of  the control of the natural resource exploitation, with the wasteful use of natural resources. In addition, the management of local authorities is still weak and restricted.

Some natural resources have an ongoing negative trend such as:

  • Forest resources, forest land are declining in quality, and natural forests cover is decreased by illegal exploiting.
  • The endangered animal and plant species are on the verge of extinction.
  • Water resources are currently polluted and the water shortage is also a problem for production.
  • Agricultural lands are increasingly degraded due to unsustainable farming.
