The programme aims to strengthen the rule of law in Vietnam through a more reliable, trusted and better accessed justice system.
This objective will be achieved by increasing access to justice for vulnerable groups, and in particular for women, children, ethnic minorities and poor people.
The strategic approach is to make people aware of their legal rights, help them invoke those rights in practice, and to improve the availability of pragmatic legal advice, assistance and, when needed, representation. It will address the demand-side and the supply-side constrains in the justice sector by building the capacity of civil society and of Government institutions at both the central and provincial level. The Programme will have a geographic focus on a limited number of provinces (still to be selected based on WB poverty rates, scoring according to the Public Administration Performance Index (PAPI) and the Justice Index, and synergy and complementarity with other EU-funded projects and programmes).
The objectives of the programme are envisaged to be achieved through four results:
Total Budget (EUR): 14,700,000
EU Contribution (EUR): 14,000,000
Implementing organisation: UNDP, Oxfam
Funding Instrument: DCI Bilateral
Benefitting zone: Vietnam
