Analysis of Chia Se Programme Relevance within the Policy Making Context of Vietnam

Chia Se, which stands for ‘partnership’ in Vietnamese, is a Sida-funded poverty alleviation programme. With an overall budget of USD 43.5 million it is part of Vietnam’s Socio-Economic Development Plan (SEDP) for 2006-2010 and supports the thrust towards decentralisation by making poverty alleviation a bottom-up and demand-driven process in three Provinces of Ha Giang, Yen Bai and Quang Tri, using poverty reduction tools such as Local Development Fund (LDF) and Local Planning for Management and Development (LPMD).

In the consultancy services to the Chia Se Poverty Reduction Programme, a special Quality Control Group (QCG) was appointed. As Chia Se Phase I was coming to an end, the programme was in the process of analysing the results and lessons learned from five years of implementation. This process included lessons and experiences from the technical assistance to the programme, as well as from the broader development context Chia Se has worked in.

The overall purpose of the assignment was to assist the Programme Management with an analysis of the relevance of Chia Se within the Vietnamese historical and political context. The focus was on how knowledge about alternative methods is communicated and the factors contributing to these alternative methods to be adopted, or rejected.
