Objectives: Sustainable improvement of the living conditions of farming families in the villages located in NPHL and its buffer zone by improving and diversifying their agricultural systems while preserving productive natural resources.

The National Park of Hoang Lien (NPHL) has 6 towns populated mostly by ethnic minority Hmong Day and Dao living from agriculture, forestry and traditional crafts.

These farming families face many agricultural difficulties and poverty rates remain high (53.3% on average), the main causes of poverty being:

  • Lack of agricultural land due to increasing populationideas-agrisud-vietnam-2017and land classification in protected natural park (since 2002) leading to the prohibition to open new fields of culture;
  • The vulnerability of crops and livestock to climate risks;
  • Low diversification of income-generating activities and high dependency on cardamom culture.
