This study explores the relationship between economic values of coral reefs, coastal poverty, and policy interventions in Vietnam, using the Hon Mun Marine Protected Area (MPA) as a case study. Hon Mun was set up in 2001, and is currently funded by a 4-year US$ 2 million programme (principally supported by international donors). This financial support has ensured sound management of its natural resources: it is recognized as a well-run MPA. In the long term, continued management would provide greater net benefits (particularly in terms of fisheries and tourism) than a ‘no management’ scenario. Yet to ensure future management, Hon Mun needs to develop its own sustainable and autonomous financing regime.
