Project Information

The Project aimed to strengthen the national AST (Agriculture Science and Technology) system in Vietnam, thereby contributing to the sustainable and equitable growth of the agriculture sector and ultimately to reduced rural poverty. It sought to address critical issues involved in AST development, including the low level of linkages among key AST areas (agricultural research, extension, and training), and the gap in the capacity of physical and human resources for the national AST system.

The Project is hoped to contribute to the resolution of these issues and increase the effectiveness and relevance of AST activities for clients to receive benefits of improved AST, and promote on-farm and off-farm sustainable use of natural resources.

Complementary Information

Gender action plan was implemented to promote gender quality in all stages of project implementation with three components: client-oriented agricultural research and capacity strengthening, grassroots agricultural extension improvement, and rural-based technical and vocational training.
