Fisheries Sector Programme Support to Vietnam, (FSPS II) Vietnam

DANIDA - Project Dates:
June 2005 - June 2005

Description of Project:
The fisheries sector was chosen as one of three sectors for Danish development assistance to Vietnam in 1993. The first main activity was support to the formulation of a Master Plan for the sector, followed by two projects: Assessment of the Living Marine Resources in Vietnam (ALMRV I) and Seafood Export and Quality Improvement Project (SEAQIP I). The second phases of these projects were eventually incorporated as components into the first Fisheries Sector Programme Support (FSPS I), which commenced in January 2000. Since the success of FSPS I, a second phase has been designed that is intended to deliver more benefits to less privileged parts of the rural population.
