UNFCCC(United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) agreed with Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation(REDD). It is necessary to develop the method of REDD suitability assessment in national scale. Existing researches suggested projection methods of deforestation area by many deforestation factors, but the causes of deforestation were different by regions. Therefore, in this study, REDD suitability in Kon Tum province in Vietnam was analyzed by several significant deforestation factors. REDD suitability value was computed using the Fuzzy set. As a result, all deforestation factors related to deforestation area and the REDD suitability value was the highest in Sa Thay district, Dak Glei district, Kon Plong district and Dak Ha district. These provinces have high biodiversity, on the other hand deforestation problem has been occurred.
