Vietnamese farmer to receive FAO award

FAO 06/09/2016

Ha Noi, Viet Nam.  A Vietnamese farmer is to receive an award next month from FAO Asia Pacific Region in recognition of her outstanding agricultural production achievements in the context of increasing climate change challenges.

Pham Thi Huan, from Long An province, will receive a “Model Farmer” award along with others from Fiji, Mongolia, Pakistan and Thailand to mark FAO’s annual World Food Day (WFD) celebrations in the Asia-Pacific region. This year, the awards, to be presented in Bangkok on behalf of FAO regional office by Thailand’s Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn on October 17, recognize achievements under the theme “Climate is changing, food and agriculture must too”. This WFD 2016 theme highlights how food and agriculture need to adapt to climate change to feed a growing global population in a sustainable way.

Ms Huan, also known as “Ba Huan”, has been rewarded for her support of Mekong Delta households to move from crop production to duck raising, egg production and distribution as a result of difficulties in growing rice and other crops due to climate change impacts. As a result, she has created jobs for many female farmers and enhanced women’s standing in respective communities.

Ba Huan, whose contributions have also been recognized by the Vietnamese Government, has engaged in numerous other local support programmes such as “Support Association for People with Disabilities and Orphans” and “Everyone is the Same”. She has also participated in Ho Chi Minh Television’s “Dream House” programme during the past decade to help farmers with initial capital to establish businesses.
