Our Mission in Vietnam

In addressing issues along the nexus of agriculture, environment, nutrition, and climate change, the Alliance in Vietnam is working with sub-national and national partners, along with the academe, private sector, and civil society to transform climate-resilient agriculture and food systems. 

Throughout the years, we have successfully delivered results and outcomes in the areas that cut across existing and emerging issues in agroecosystems, climate action, biodiversity for food and agriculture, consumer behavior, among others. 


To safeguard food systems transformation in Vietnam underscored by climate risks, the Alliance is contributing to delivering actionable research that aims to bridge science into policy and capture relevant lessons that not only impacts national-level decisions but also open different opportunities to improve people’s lives and diets at a household level.

Thematic areas of focus

While Vietnam is experiencing rapid economic growth and urbanization, its rural and peri-urban areas remain largely dependent on local agriculture and food systems as their main source of sustenance, including livelihoods. The increasing movement to cities has slowly defined what, where, and how food is grown in peri-urban and rural areas. The compounding impacts of climate change also puts nutrition and food production more at risk as rainfall and temperatures change across the country. 

In Vietnam, we are specifically contributing to the following research areas: 

  • Food environment and consumer behavior 
  • Livestock and tropical forages 
  • Cassava 
  • Digital Agriculture 
  • Agroecosystems and sustainable landscapes 
  • Climate Action 
  • Biodiversity for Food and Nutrition

Projects and Flagship Initiatives

Direct contributions to our research areas in Vietnam, these projects and flagship initiatives in the country are creating positive impact in the livelihoods of communities in Vietnam.
