What is PGS? How does it work? What has it achieved? What lessons have we learned? This policy brief answers all those questions and more and makes a series of recommendations about what policy-makers can do to support the development of PGS in Vietnam.
As part of the project “Capitalisation of Participatory Guarantee System experiences in Vietnam for upscaling and institutionalisation”, funded by the Agroecology Learning Alliance in Southeast Asia, Vietnam National University of Agriculture and Rikolto investigated all the existing PGSs in Vietnam to assess their strengths and weaknesses and come up with recommendations on how to improve PGS in the Vietnamese context. The paragraphs below present some of they key elements of the policy brief which can we downloaded at the bottom of this page.
