Journey through Vietnam: Reflections on a Learning Route on Production and Market Linkages in Vietnam

This Learning Route organized by IFAD Vietnam and PROCASUR focused on “Production and market linkages for sustainable development”, a three-day journey which took them to a model of innovation – Quang Ninh Farm (in My Phong Village, Hai Thanh Commune, Ninh Hai district, Ninh Thuan province) – supported by the IFAD-funded project Agriculture, Farmers and Rural Areas Support Project (TNSP) in Ninh Thuan province, Vietnam.

This model demonstrated a good example of strengthening the cooperation of production groups and market linkages to sustainably improve livelihoods among ethnic minority and rural poor households. Practical experiences from the farm were fundamental for exchanging views and stimulating debate among members of the route, before settling upon details of their innovation plans – conceptualizing what they have learned and taking it home.

In total, four Innovation Plans were designed to make use of the local advantages and promote the common interest group (CIG) on agricultural production. From an apple farmer who is eager to start up his business with his team in the common interest group, a businessman of a grape production cooperative wishing to introduce his products internationally in order to create more jobs and generate income for women, to a district agriculture officer targeting better linkages for value chains in Ninh Thuan. This publication gives you the opportunity to listen to the voices of the Routeros; what they have learned, and how they have been empowered to positively change their own communities, during this exciting journey
