The proposed intervention is to strengthen the voice and capacity of vulnerable ethnic minority farmers in climate resilience in Northwest Vietnam. The strategy has been refined into a holistic approach ensuring lasting improvements in living conditions, higher chances for participation and securing of equal opportunities for ethnic minority communities in the Northwest of Vietnam.

The objective is: “The resilience of vulnerable ethnic minorities to climate change in Northwest Vietnam have been strengthened through the promotion of climate-smart agriculture and their participation in the decision-making process.” The immediate objectives are to well-inform community farmer organizations and jointly engage in local decision-making processes, and all farmers should be able to effectively apply locally adapted CSA and profit from increased collaboration and partnerships with governmental and private actors.

Results should be recognized by provincial authorities and shared and discussed at national and international level and venues in the Lower Mekong sub-region.
