image of Assessment of Development Results - Viet Nam

This two volume report on Viet Nam’s Assessment of Development Results (ADR) focuses on the following three thematic areas: fostering democratic governance; achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and reducing poverty under a human development perspective; and ensuring environmental sustainability. Reflecting on the characteristics of Viet Nam’s economic history, its current juncture and prospects, the ADR examined the past with a forward-looking perspective.



Vulnerable groups and inequalities

In spite of impressive achievements in poverty alleviation, challenges still remain. Growth has not affected all groups in Viet Nam equally positively. The first NHDR found that in the provinces with a low Human Development Index the average income growth rate for the poor was –0.8%, whereas the average income growth rate for the rich (nationwide) was 115.0% (1994-1996). The most vulnerable groups are women, people with HIV/AIDS and ethnic minorities.
