Shrimp Value Chain

Sustainable and Equitable Shrimp Production and Value Chain development in Vietnam

Vietnam shrimp production provides livelihoods for over a million of people and improves income for small scale producers accounting for more than 80% of Vietnam shrimp production. However, the booming of shrimp industry, relies on saline water ecology, has been associated with serious environmental and social impacts. The linkage between various shrimp value chain actors has been fragmented and inefficient which negatively affects product quality and traceability which, in turn, decrease the competitiveness of Vietnam shrimp products globally. Limited access to financial resources is also a barrier for small scale producers and SME processors to expand production and comply with the required standards.

The project promotes sustainable economic prosperity and poverty reduction in Vietnam through improving social and environmental impacts of shrimp production and related activities in its value chain. The project facilitates the adoption and implementation of participatory Social Impact Assessment (p-SIA) and Biodiversity Environment Impact Assessment (B-EIA) criteria of Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) standards by shrimp producers and processors; and improves access to finance.
