INTRODUCTION
Migration has changed every corner of Vietnam in the past 50
years. At the same time, social upheaval, the effects of war, and
political and economic transformation have altered the nature of
social relations and environmental resources. Although demo-
graphic change is most striking in the uplands of Vietnam (1),
the fertile coastal lowlands also have experienced significant
changes. These demographic changes, allied to changing con-
sumption and production patterns, bring about changes in envi-
ronmental resource use. It is these outcomes, such as changing
forest cover, intensification of agriculture, and overexploitation
of renewable resources, that are commonly the focus of envi-
ronmental research. But this research frequently occurs without
an explicit link to the demographic changes that contribute to
and shape the process of change. Thus, this study examines the
links between migration and resource use, specifically the ef-
fects of emigration on natural resource use in a migrant-send-
ing or source area.
