Hệ thống ISG

The ISG forum is essentially a network of organizations that can meet, exchange information and share learning in support of policy dialogue development for Vietnam’s Agricultural and Rural Development Sector and other areas, such as climate change, that are broader in scope but which have an impact on the ARD sector.


The ISG forum is about linking key decision makers with a diverse range of actors, to be engaged in the policy dialogue facilitation process.  This includes organizations that are focused on scientific or technical support, bilateral or multi-lateral organizations, NGO’s, member associations and the private sector, among many others.


The ISG Network page aims to identify these actors so that those organizations participating in the ISG forum (including MARD itself) can establish networks of communication with each other, either through official channels such as forums or consultations or to help with information dissemination among interested stakeholders.


The information contained on the ISG Network pages is a foundation only and is not a comprehensive. Over time, the ISG secretariat hopes to add further information and contacts to the pages, with support from members of the ISG network.  If you have suggestions to add more contacts to a section of the ISG network, or to update or add to information contained here, email the ISG secretariat - isgmard@fpt.vn.
