Over the past two decades, Vietnam has experienced tremendous economic and social change. Pact has worked to ensure that as the country develops, people who are challenged by poverty and marginalization are able to access the benefits.
Beginning in 2004, Pact worked to build the capacity of civil society organizations to reduce HIV infections in Vietnam with prevention, treatment and a supportive social and policy environment.
In 2013, Pact introduced its award-winning WORTH program in Vietnam. WORTH helps women lift themselves and each other out of poverty with literacy training, community banking and microbusiness development, enabling members to become entrepreneurs, activists and effective leaders of change in their communities.
Today, through USAID Green Invest Asia, Pact is supporting developing countries in Asia, including Vietnam, to achieve sustainable landscape-related climate mitigation goals as submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The project is catalyzing private sector finance to upscale and drive investments in agriculture, forestry and other land use toward low emissions, yet profitable business models.
