Contract partner: World Vision Österreich - Verein für Entwicklungszusammenarbeit, humanitäre Nothilfe und Anwaltschaft Country: Vietnam Funding amount: € 500.000,00 Project start: 01.12.2022 End: 31.08.2026

Short Description:

Overall goal

Target households and producer groups increase disaster risk reduction capacity, sustainable production of food and non-food items and successfully sell their produce on the local market or through e-commerce. (Contribution to SDGs 1, 2, 5, 13 and EU GAP III objectives: Promoting economic and social rights and empowering girls and women, promoting equal participation and leadership, climate change and environment, digitalisation)

Expected results

1) Community-based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) is strengthened through access to digital services on monitoring, early warning and response management;

2) Target households and producer groups have increased skills on relevant techniques for sustainable food and non-food production, inputs and access to information through the technical information hub;

3) Target households and producer groups make informed decisions on business planning and improve their management through digital solutions;

4) Target households and producer groups have increased access to local and digital markets and know how to improve their products based on market needs.

Target group / Beneficiaries

Direct beneficiaries are 500 individuals/household representatives, in Thanh Hoa Province, Vietnam, including 300 individuals/household representatives receiving livelihood support and 200 individual/household representatives receiving CBRM trainings. Of the beneficiaries over 70% are ethnic minorities, 216 men, 284 women. Additionally, the project will indirectly benefit 14,897 people (7,445 males and 7,452 females of which are 1,323 boys and 1,377 girls; 9,900 of indirect beneficiaries are ethnic minorities and 510 people with a disability.).


The project will work with hydromet services and local partners to facilitate the digitalisation process of CBRDM practices in the three target communes. Capacity of relevant stakeholders on digital technology application in disaster risk reduction and management will be improved. The skills and productivity of target groups will be increased through the establishment of producer groups, the provision of trainings on relevant techniques for sustainable food and non-food production, as well as the provision of inputs to apply 4.0 business acceleration techniques on climate smart food and non-food production and marketing. A virtual platform will be created to allow producers to access relevant information. To empower producers so that they can make informed decisions on business planning and management, the application of digital solutions in production monitoring, planning and sale will be promoted through trainings on digital solutions, financial literacy, digital saving. Producer groups will be equipped with devices to improve the groups’ activities management. To increase producers’ access to local and digital markets and allow them to adopt their products to market needs, training on e-commerce and production of marketing contents will be implemented and producer groups will receive access to production management software application, production database, traceability stamps and register for barcodes.


Despite being adversely impacted by severe weather conditions and natural disaster risks, Nhu Xuan district does not have automatic rain measuring stations or early warning systems. On the other hand, the vulnerable groups in the target locations have insufficient knowledge to adapt their production to the weather conditions. Furthermore, the lack of digitalisation adoption in production, low product quality, lack of access to microfinance services has led to low productivity and competitiveness, limited market access. As a result, households do not generate sufficient income for to address their households' needs and ensure child wellbeing.
