Document type:
Case study
Description:

Soc Trang and Angiang provinces in Vietnam have the highest rice productivity in the country. However, this is not leading to improvements in living standards for local rice farmers. A lack of collaboration among producers means they are unable to link with big rice export companies. A fragmented value chain and difficulty in acquiring investment, information, and technical knowledge are also major challenges. Traditional social norms and heavy unpaid care work mean that women, who make up half of all rice producers in Vietnam, have little decision-making power or access to resources.

This case study explains how the Gender Transformative and Responsible Agribusiness Investments in South East Asia (GRAISEA) programme works to address these problems. Using a multi-stakeholder approach, Oxfam in Vietnam works with local authorities, the private sector, and scientists to help farmers produce their rice in a sustainable way and increase their incomes. The programme works with producers to highlight women’s vital role in rice production and challenge gender stereotypes in the household and community so that women can have an equal voice in making decisions about their families’ livelihoods.
