Video Rice and aquaculture in Vietnam

TLF ID M017135

This is a video about small-scale farming in Vietnam. It includes the issues surrounding food production in Vietnam and two case studies of farming families. One case study is about a family in northern Vietnam that produces rice, fruit and some dairy to meet their own survival needs. The second case study is about a family based in Hanoi that has been supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to improve farming methods and therefore increase production of rice, fruit and aquaculture beyond their immediate survival needs.
