Unlocking livestock development potential: Stakeholder meeting fuels progress for Vietnam's ethnic minorities
We recently attended a stakeholder meeting in northwest Vietnam that marks an important step in addressing poverty, malnutrition, and gender inequality among ethnic minority communities.
Livestock sector experts gathered in Phu Yen District, Son La Province on 21 June 2023, to discuss strategies for transforming the sector and improving the lives of these communities.
With the support of the CGIAR Initiative on Sustainable Animal Productivity for Livelihoods, Nutrition and Gender Inclusion (SAPLING), the project aims to enhance livestock productivity and promote inclusive development among ethnic minorities.
By focusing on pig and cattle value chains in pilot project sites, the initiative seeks to overcome challenges such as low productivity, poor animal husbandry practices, and limited market access.
This collaborative effort involving multiple organizations and local authorities has the potential to drive sustainable livestock transformation, reduce poverty, improve nutrition, and empower marginalized communities in Son La Province.
