We work in Vietnam through a 10-year Development Partnership Arrangement that will end in 2016. DFID Vietnam also runs our remaining programmes in Cambodia
Vietnam has developed rapidly over the last 2 decades, but significant development challenges remain.
More than 14 million people live below $1.25 a day. Half of ethnic minority households are poor.
The Millennium Development Goal target for HIV/AIDS is off track and the target for sanitation could be missed.
Macro-economic instability resulting for example in rising prices for basic commodities is negatively affecting poor people’s lives.
Climate change is a real threat: Vietnam is one of the top 5 countries likely to be most affected by sea level rise.
More effort is needed to make real progress in tackling corruption.
We committed to support the country to address these challenges through a 10-year Development Partnership Arrangement and will exit in 2016.
