Project Information

The JFPR project was hoped to contribute to poverty reduction in the mountainous districts in the northern central region of Vietnam by enhancing agricultural income and ensuring food security (rice and maize) among the poor through community-based agricultural extension and training programs.

The Project specifically aimed to:

  • Improve livelihoods of the rural poor in remote communities through better cultivation practices on food crops, and through appropriate knowledge and technologies for other crops and income-generating activities;
  • Increase the capacity of local agricultural extension workers and grassroot-level extension agents in appropriate cultivation techniques, and participatory and pro-poor extension services;
  • Establish farmer-to-farmer learning networks; and
  • Promote decentralized and participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation.

Gender will be mainstreamed into all project activities.
