Effective implementation of crop diversification strategies for Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam: Insights from past experiences and ideas for new research

The governments of Cambodia and Lao PDR have made strong commitments to integrate climate change mitigation and adaptation into their national and sectorial development policies and action plans. Vietnam has also started to address climate change adaptation at national and sub-national levels. Governments in all three countries have identified a series of agriculture-based interventions as priorities to strengthen the resilience of smallholder farmers, most notably, crop diversification. Bioversity International is working with national partners in the three countries to identify key elements needed to effectively implement policy measures for crop diversification targeted at farmers (both women and men) and ethnic minorities in low and upland regions. In 2014, this resulted in the elaboration of three country desk reviews of past and ongoing crop diversification projects and an international workshop on crop diversification in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam. This book presents the results of both the desk reviews and the workshop.
