14 Oct 2013 -- FAO is the specialized agency mandated to work in agriculture and rural development. With the aim of increasing the impact and effectiveness of FAO’s support to Vietnam, the Country Programming Framework (CPF) for the period 2012 – 2016 has been developed.
The CPF takes a results-based approach that builds on FAO’s comparative strengths and partnerships at national and international levels. The objective of the CPF is to identify priority areas for FAO’s support and expected results for the 2012-2016 period. FAO’s priority areas are selected based on Viet Nam’s Socio-Economic Development Strategy (2010-2019), strategic development plans of agriculture, forestry and fishery in Viet Nam, and the strengths and experience of FAO Viet Nam.
The launching event of FAO Country Programming Framework was held on 14th October 2013 at the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development MARD, chaired by Madame Nguyen Thi Xuan Thu, Vice Minister of MARD and Mr. JongHa Bae, FAO Representative in Vietnam.
