VIET NAM - A 5 million USD poverty reduction project that was largely funded by Norway, has benefited seven disadvantaged villages in the coastal district of Trieu Phong, central Quang Tri province.

The programme, to which Norway incvested $4 million (US), has over the past six years, built eight irrigation projects, a dyke along the district’s sand hill area and planted 914 hectares of protective forests.

Around 72 aquaculture ponds, a shrimp nursery that supplies fry for 1,200 farmers and 12 ecological villages have also been established to go along with schools, roads, and power grids and transmission stations that have been built thanks to the Norwegian initiative.
