APIRAS-APAARI-FAO Good Practice Note 7 -Promoting Climate Sensitive Innovations in the Mekong Delta through Diversified Public-Private Partnership

In this Good Practice Note, Marie-Aude Even, Francisco Pichon, Nguyen Thanh Tung and Nguyen Ngoc Quang reflect on the lessons learnt from this project. The authors highlight the importance of mainstreaming climate sensitive innovations into local planning processes and extension systems, investing in capacity development of local government organizations, mass organizations and groups. This is for fostering partnership with both rural financing institutions and value chain partners, thereby addressing not only the need to consider climate specific contexts but also the special needs and investment capacities of targeted smallholder farmers whilst promoting climate smart models.
