This week in Thua Thien-Hue province, USAID gathered input from diverse stakeholders to inform the development of its $25 million, five-year Local Capacity Development project, which will enhance engagement between provincial governments and local organizations. This will lead to more transparent policymaking and better delivery of services to Vietnamese citizens. USAID anticipates launching the project early next year, with Thua Thien-Hue as one of the potential target provinces. While in Thua Thien-Hue, Acting Consul General Robert Greenan and Acting Mission Director Bradley Bessire met with representatives of the Thua Thien-Hue Provincial People's Committee, relevant departments and agencies, academia, the private sector, and local organizations, and paid a visit to Huong River Ancient Pottery Museum for a discussion on cultural heritage conservation as a driver of local tourism. Clearly demonstrating why Hue should be part of the project, the USAID team was greeted with enthusiasm and commitment to creating new linkages between communities in local government and an overall love and respect for the culture of Hue.

Enhancing local governance will contribute to USAID/Vietnam’s CDCS Portfolio-wide Governance Results including government responsiveness and transparency increased, collective action accelerated, and policies and policy implementation improved.
