The Vietnam national consulation started with a meeting with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) on the 6th November. At this meeting CGIAR entities working in or interested in working in Vietnam met with MARD to explore more about CGIAR presence in Vietnam and how this could be better coordinated and how greater collaboration with MARD could be ensured. Please read more about this meeting at http://gcard3.cgiar.org/vietnam.
The meeting with MARD was a stepping stone for planning site integration in Vietnam, with a full National Consultation planned for December 14-15 2015. For more information on this national consultation contact the CGIAR Consortium Office (n.manning[at]cgiar[dot]org) or Dindo Campilan (d.campilan[at]cgiar[dot]org) from CIAT.
