ROLES OF VILLAGE INSTITUTIONS IN POVERTY REDUCTION IN SOME TYPICAL ETHNIC MINORITY COMMUNITIES OF VIETNAM

June 3rd, 2013 by Posted in Tài liệu xuất bản/Publications

Together with the efforts in State governance reform at the macro level, local governance reform plays an important role in poverty reduction. Village institutions, both official and unofficial, are the basis for local governance. Strong village institutions enhance community assets and increase the effectiveness of external support. Forming and strengthening village institutions contributes to local governance reform and to the development of rural civil society. These are the urgent needs in ethnic minority areas.

Based on the analysis of the positive roles village institutions play in improving livelihoods and reducing poverty in some typical ethnic minority communities, Oxfam and ActionAid
International Vietnam, who have sound experience supporting the poorest and the most vulnerable groups in Vietnam, have conducted this research in order to provide some recommendations for policy dialogues on sustainable poverty reduction and development in ethnic minority areas of Vietnam.

We hope you will find the report useful and interesting.
