ActionAid has committed to further take part in the process of poverty reduction and sustainable development in Vietnam.

The commitment was made in Country Strategy Paper V for the 2012-17 term that ActionAid Vietnam announced on Nov. 23.

Accordingly, the international non-governmental organisation will maintain its programme in disadvantaged areas in the northern mountainous region, the Central Highlands and the Mekong delta.

It will also expand the programme to deal with new issues of poverty reduction and development such as poverty in urban areas and climate change./.
