The Hanoi University of Pharmacy (HUP) assists various ethnic hill tribes with conserving rare medicinal plants. HUP documents the ethnobotany and establishes cooperative farms for sustainable livelihoods. At the request of HUP, Plant Group Chairperson Bian Tan visited mountainous Ha Giang Province that has, until recently, been closed to foreign visitors. He helped to survey the site of a medicinal plant conservation centre. This centre will benefit local hill tribe cooperatives by providing horticultural expertise and a nursery to produce seeds for their crops. The centre will also interpret hill tribe cultures to tourists. Join Bian as he presents his Ha Giang plant survey and the area’s dramatic landscapes.
