03 Mar 2014 -- Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Cao Duc Phat approved the UNJP 054, to support enhancing readiness for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) in agriculture and rural development. The goal of this project is to improve the national capacity for planning and implementing agriculture NAMAs in Viet Nam, and as a result, to support ‘climate-smart’ agriculture through Integrated Food-Energy Systems (IFES).

This project will contribute outcome that the national capacity will be developed to enable the adoption of NAMA from agricultural production practices based on IFES, with a focus on integrated crop-livestock systems and renewable energy options. On impact level, the project outcomes may positively influence in reducing fossil fuel based energy and fertilizer use in Viet Nam, while, at the same time, sustainably increasing agricultural productivity and improving the resilience of smallholder farming systems to climate change and variability.

The programme will be carried out during 3 years, with a total budget of USD 770,000. The inception workshop on 7 March 2014 is divided into two sessions: signing ceremony of the project document and technical discussion on NAMA development in agriculture in Viet Nam.  Interested national/international organizations are kindly invited to the workshop.
