This project is part of


Phase 1 (2015 - 2017): In this initial phase, Oxfam in Vietnam will conduct research and advocacy on Vietnamese cross-border agricultural investments in Laos and Cambodia. We will prioritize leading crops like rubber, coffee, and sugar cane, with an aim to reducing social and environmental impacts of investment. The project will be coordinated and managed by the land governance program team in Vietnam, in cooperation with Oxfam country offices in Laos and Cambodia, Oxfam Hong Kong, and a range of local government, NGO andprivate sector partners. Phase 2 (2017 - 2018): Building on the achievements of Phase 1, this project (Phase II) will continue to work towards the same objectives by pushing for the adoption and implementation of the guidelines for Vietnamese agriculture OFDI developed in the pilot phase and expanding the project to Myanmar. Key expected outcomes in Phase II include: 1. Vietnamese companies investing in Laos and Cambodia make public commitments to implement the guideline on responsible agricultural investment in the Mekong Sub-region. 2. Vietnamese businesses with current or planned agricultural investments in Myanmar make public commitments to implement the guideline on responsible investment. Total direct beneficiaries of Phase 2 are 10,000 persons, while indirect beneficiaries are around 300,000 persons in this particular project.
