Structural transformation of agriculture in Vietnam

Research project in Human Geography

Project's title: Structural transformation of agriculture in Vietnam - a longitudinal study of diversification, including income-diversification, among rice farmers in the Mekong and Red River Deltas.

Contact person: Magnus Jirström

Researchers in the project:


The project, which has been going on since 1997, focuses on structural changes in the regions agricultural systems with a special emphasis on processes of diversification and, within this field, the growing importance of off-farm incomes within rice agriculture in the dominating rice-growing areas of Vietnam – the Red River and the Mekong Deltas. Within the framework for the project we have an active cooperation with researchers at Vietnamese Research Institutions – primarily CLRRI: Cuu Long Rice Research Institute in Can Tho and ESDRI: Environment and Sustainable Development Research Institute in Hanoi. The project is carried out in close cooperation with Department of Statistics at Lund University.
