Despite the well-documented clinical efficacy of artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) against malaria, the population-level effects of ACT have not been studied thoroughly until recently. An ideal case study for these population-level effects can be found in Vietnam’s gradual adoption of artemisinin in the 1990s.
With private contributions becoming increasingly pivotal to global climate finance, it is evident that scaling up and channeling private capital is crucial in meeting the goal of achieving the Paris Agreement and limiting global warming to two degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level.
This health impact assessment framework serves as a guide to manage health risks and impacts in economic zones of the Greater Mekong Region and address transboundary issues associated with human migration.
Poverty in Vietnam continues to fall, particularly amongst ethnic minorities, who saw their rate of poverty decline significantly by 13 percentage points, the largest decline in the past decade, says a new World Bank report.
This study provides guidance on pricing policy reform to promote sustainable and socially inclusive water use and management in Vietnam. The study considers investment needs in the water sector, and reviews alternative approaches to water pricing that are likely to generate much-needed financial capital.
A new study summarises the motivations behind the use of endangered wildlife products in Viet Nam, with an ultimate goal of helping behavioural science practitioners develop messages and initiatives to help reduce their consumption.
Global rice production systems face two opposing challenges: the need to increase production to accommodate the world's growing population while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Adaptations to drainage regimes are one of the most promising options for methane mitigation in rice production. Whereas several studies have focused on mid-season drainage (MD) to mitigate GHG emissions, early-season drainage (ED) varying in timing and duration has not been extensively studied.
The project Integrated agricultural technologies for enhanced adaptive capacity and resilient livelihoods in climate-smart villages (CSVs) of Southeast Asia aims to provide climate-smart agriculture (CSA) options to enhance adaptive capacity and resilience among CSV farmers and stakeholders.
