Climate-smart agriculture increases farmers’ incomes in Ha Tinh Province

In Spring, farmers in Can Loc and Huong Son Districts harvested honey and onions for the first time. Mr Toan, a resident of Dong Loc Village, was happy to talk about the VND 8 million (~290 EUR) income his family received for their first honey harvest, enough to meet their everyday needs and pay for the children’s schooling. Farmers growing onions instead of rice have seen their incomes triple.

Since November 2020, under the framework of the Project Support to Viet Nam for the Implementation of the Paris Agreement (VN-SIPA), 1,504 farmers have been provided with training, from which 260 households have received additional support in apiculture, home garden improvement, local onion-bean crops, and drought-resist guinea grass (for animal raising). The aim of this technical assistance is to improve the households’ resilience to climate change impacts while at the same time increasing their incomes.

The project also connects farmers with the local Hydro Met-Station. The Station provides agro-climate information services (ACIS), providing 10-day weather forecasts and seasonal information. This enables farmers to better manage crop production. The Station has been contacting all the farmers in the project sites and plans to reach Ky Anh and Huong Khe Districts.

These project outcomes were reported to representatives of GIZ, World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) and Ha Tinh Provincial partners during a mission to the project sites from 22-26 March. The aim of the mission was to review project implementation and encourage progress.
