HANOI, December 18, 2014 -- The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has just launched a first-of-its-kind project in Vietnam that aims to empower farmers, especially women, to enhance their access to land by increasing their awareness of existing land rights under current legislation.

The two-year pilot effort will set up and train teams of grassroots community volunteers to help farmers, particularly women farmers, in the northern province of Hung Yen and the Mekong Delta province of Long An to improve their understanding of land rights.  In addition to training community volunteers, the project will support the work of researchers to better understand and document gender-specific barriers to realizing land rights in rural areas. This project will combine commune-level legal rights counseling and education with advocacy efforts, which will focus on increasing the capacity of social and mass organizations to advocate for gender equitable implementation of land regulations, as well as legal revisions when necessary to achieve this.
