The espoused high-level goal for this 3-year project was to increase land and water productivity for improved food security and livelihoods in a manner that was environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable to various resource users. This Viet Nam project was part of a larger project, namely the Managing Water and Land Resources for Sustainable Livelihoods at the Interface Between Fresh and Saline Water Environments in Viet Nam and Bangladesh (CP WF#10) project that embraced the Gangetic Delta as well. This facilitated an exchange of knowledge and experiences in managing land and water between the two deltas. This evaluation was intended to identify what contribution the project had made to reducing poverty and food insecurity in the Mekong Delta as a result of an investment by the CPWF.
