Viet Nam Country Programming Framework

 

The Country Programme Framework CPF takes a results-based approach that builds on FAO’s comparative strengths and partnerships at national and international levels. The objective of the CPF is to identify priority areas for FAO’s support and  expected results for the 2012-2016 period. FAO’s priority areas are selected based on Viet Nam’s Socio-Economic Development Strategy (2010-2019), strategic development plans of agriculture, forestry and fishery in Viet Nam, and the strengths and experience of FAO Viet Nam.

Food Prices, Vulnerability and Food Security in Viet Nam: A UN Perspective

Viet Nam is, by no means, facing a shortage of food or on the brink of a food security crisis. Agricultural production is very good and Viet Nam is a net exporter of rice and many other commodities. Rice prices rose sharply in late 2007, peaked in June 2008, dropped thereafter but remain higher than in previous years. The same has happened with other important food items in the consumption basket of the typical Vietnamese family, including pork, chicken, wheat, maize and eggs, among other food items

Factsheet - Joint Programme on Integrated Nutrition and Food Strategies

The issue:
While Viet Nam has achieved a significant reduction in malnutrition among under-five children during the last three decades, malnutrition remains a public health priority.  There are important differences in food patterns between the highlands, midlands and mountainous areas, between urban and rural areas, and between ethnic groups. Many maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) core outcomes, such as like maternal mortality, child mortality and child malnutrition rates, are lagging behind in these areas compared to the rest of Viet Nam, especially among poor and disadvantaged groups.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December

 

Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.
