Policy workshop on Vietnam Access to Resources Household Survey (VARHS)

On 19 May UNU-WIDER and the University of Copenhagen held a policy workshop on the Vietnam Access to Resources Household Survey (VARHS) in partnership with the Central Institute for Economic Management (CIEM) in Hanoi as part of the ongoing ​Structural Transformation and Inclusive Growth in Vietnam project. The participants were from CIEM and Institute of Labor Science and Social Affairs officials, members of other research institutes, and the general public.

The VARHS Synthesis Report describes how growth, structural transformation, and rural change in Vietnam has impacted rural households. The workshop was organized in order for the report to receive feedback prior to its final submission from those who the project is intended to benefit – Vietnamese policy makers and planners.

Slides from the workshop (below) by UNU-WIDER Research Fellows Carol Newman and Saurabh Singhal outline the methodology, as well as key findings and conclusions of the project.
