IMPACT ASSESSMENT: Joint Programme on Green Production and trade to increase income and employment opportunities for the rural poor



This report details the processes behind a programme that increased income, enhanced productivity and created a significant number of jobs throughout the handicraft supply chain in Northern Vietnam. The programme applied a value chain approach to develop a better integrated, pro-poor and environmentally sustainable “green” value chain.

The programme’s successes in enhanced productivity and increased employment stem from two main outputs: the introduction of innovative equipment & tools to craft producers and capacity building activities in support of SME’s. As a result, two local provinces are mobilizing funding for the up-scaling and replication of these activities, specifically focused on the bamboo/rattan and sericulture value chains.
