Abstract
  • The project titled “Aquaculture Development in Northern Uplands” (VIE/98/009/01/NEX) stressed on strengthening an extension network and improvement of seed production and delivery system among the target groups at the remote area. Moreover, it gave a high priority to gender education and women's involvement in all activities. The project was implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), provincial departments of Agriculture and Rural Development in Son La, Lai Chau and Hoa Binh, Food & Agriculture Organization of UN (FAO) in cooperation with the Vietnam Ministry of Fisheries (MOFI). This project had introduced and tested two new management practices for poverty reduction, which could be considered for replication under the HEPR (Hunger eradication & poverty reduction) & others programme in Vietnam. First, the establishment of CAG (Commune Action Group) - small responsive social group and used it in creating an enabling environment & mobilizing the involvement of the local communities and their organization in planning and implementing the project. Secondly, the role of CAG in organizing a participatory extension & credit support service to best ensured the delivery of technology and financial package assistance to poor disadvantaged & isolated ethnic communities of whom more than 50% were women. This study clearly demonstrated that the poor ethnic minority women group played a vital role in small-scale aquaculture and received substantial benefits form the project. This project has succeeded in creating suitable opportunities and condition for women to be able to effectively participation in all activities such as providing loans, aquaculture technologies and micro credit management training. There also changed about the idea of women group the way to do economic & generally in evaluation of capacity, empower of women.
