As indicated in the box on the previous page, the approach taken in this study has evolved overtime as we, the study team, gradually understood the issues that were important or under-standing the evolution o the five sub-sector and sector partnerships supported by the Ministryo Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) and its national and international partners.Notably, in addition to reviewing conditioning actors at the national and MARD level, we ap-proached this study as a
analysis, rather than as an individual analysis o eachpartnership. We realised that a comparative approach would be more eective in helping usidentiy “what works and what doesn’t work” across partnerships. Readers interested in a de-tailed analysis o the individual partnerships are, thereore, reerred to the (many) annual orother reviews o each these partnerships.Furthermore, the core objective o this study is to generate learning that is useul or de-cision-makers in Vietnam when assessing whether the MARD partnerships have eectivelycontributed to enhanced aid eectiveness and sector coordination. It will also be useul whenexploring options or using partnership structures as the means or aid management andsector coordination in the context o the upcoming Rural Development Strategy or Vietnam.The primary audience o this report is, thereore, these national decision-makers. However,being jointly implemented by MARD and the Global Donor Platorm or Rural Development(Platorm), the study also serves a global Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) audienceinterested in learning about the “Vietnamese experience”. Needless to say, the context knowl-edge o these two audiences is radically dierent, as is their interest in whether the content othis report provides a detailed analysis o “what works and what doesn’t work” as opposed toa grand overview o the “big picture”. When drating this report, we have tried to find a middleway, striking a balance between the interests o these two audiences. We have also included aairly extensive executive summary or those who want the big picture quickly!This study is an independent study. This report thereore represents the views and observa-tions o the consultant team and does not necessarily refect the oficial viewpoints o MARD,the Global Donor Platorm or Rural Development or agencies interviewed as part o the study.Finally, the study team consulted extensively with a wide range o national and internationalstakeholders at the level o individual partnerships, MARD, other GoV agencies and interna-tional agencies and international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) operating in Viet-nam. The team wishes to thank all the parties they met with or their willingness to engageenthusiastically and open-mindedly in the exploration o issues and opportunities o relevanceto the study. A special note o appreciation goes to Dr. Le Van Minh, Director-General, ICD/MARD, Ms. Nguyen Thi Phuong Nga, ISG Manager and Mr. Ngo Gia Trung, ISG Communicationsand Inormation Oficer or their never-ending support to the team.Jens RydderDao Thanh HuyenLotta HöglundHanoi, January 2008
