Vegetable seed systems for ethnic minorities in northern Vietnam for enhanced nutrition and income

Vegetables are a main source of nutrition and income for ethnic minority farmers in Vietnam’s Northern highlands. While the consumption of vegetables and value chains for fresh retail produce and seed markets offer huge opportunities for household nutrition security and development, and particularly women inclusion, current smallholder systems suffer from multiple problems. The Integrated vegetable seed systems development project addressed these issues by elucidating how, and under what conditions, increased access and use of high-quality seed translates into enhanced smallholder nutrition and income security. This poster provides the project highlights presented at the NL-CGIAR Conference, 2-3 November 2022.
