A gender lens for Viet Nam's flagship poverty reduction programme

Briefing papers
October 2010
Nicola Jones and Tran Thi Van Anh

While there is a growing body of evidence on the gendered patterning of vulnerabilities in Viet Nam, gender inequalities tend to be overlooked in the country’s social protection policies and programmes in general, and in the NTPPR in particular. There is little recognition, for example, of the gendered aspects of human capital development and income generating opportunities.

This Project Briefing synthesises research findings from the first stage of a three-year AusAID-funded study by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and Viet Nam’s Institute of Family and Gender Studies (IFGS), which aims to plug this gap by exploring the linkages between gender, food security and social protection effectiveness.
