EC/FAO/CSA project for VietnamProject area: Northern mountainousregions (Son La, Yen Bai and Dien Bien)• Poorest region in Vietnam• Food shortages/insecurity due to climateshocks• Dry and stony soils, landslides and erosion• Uptake sustainable farming practices limitedby adoption barries (e.g labor constraint,fragmented land tenure, competition for useof residue)
  • 4. EC/FAO/CSA project focusSustainable land management on sloping land:• Sustainable maize systems (mini-terraces,intercropping with legumes)• Minimum soil disturbance and use of perennialsystems (diversification into Arabica coffee, tea,rubber with high value shade tree forcoffee/avocado, macademia nut)• Combined systems of crop production andintensive cattle raisingTowards: zoning approach?• Increase areas of forest at top of slopes andexplore bringing maize to lower altitude and ricealready being grown in the valley.• Zoning enforced by incentives
  • 5. • Evidence base combining social-economic andclimate data• Capacity building: supporting participation toUNFCCC, training MSc and PhD students; trainingwith cool farm and EX-ACT tools for mitigationpotential/ emission accounting• Identifying CSA practices/zoning approaches• Participatory scenario building and policysimulation to link data and policies/strategies• Prepare CSA investment proposals (incentives toreinforce zoning, added value for coffee and tea)• Facilitating exchange of CSA experiences withinSSC.Project contribution for Vietnam
