This monograph is a collection of papers by an ACIAR research team spanning
government and academia in Vietnam and Australia. It provides valuable insights into
Vietnam’s agricultural development through time, the policy development process,
current food security policies, and capacity for evidence-based food security analysis.
Current food security policies are evaluated against a set of food security policy issues,
and recommendations for food security policy reform are presented. Methods for

The papers in this monograph explore how to improve financial and broader economic
analysis of agroforestry systems. They also examine legal, capital, labour, management and
policy measures that could facilitate agroforestry in Fiji and Vanuatu. Financial analyses of
various individual tree and crop species, and of example mixed-species models, are provided
for both Fiji and Vanuatu. The information presented in this monograph offers valuable
insights into the potential for further agroforestry development in Fiji and Vanuatu, and

The project used the methodology of participatory action research (PAR), building on a particular approach developed by the two co-chief investigators (see Spriggs and Chambers, 2011). This approach began with an extensive information gathering stage involving a variety of methods (baseline survey, capacity inventory, focus groups and case study). At this stage, initial meetings were held with all the commodity-based projects (CBPs) of ASLP2 to learn of their activities and to build relationships.
