Name: To develop new graduate-level programs linking natural resource management and poverty alleviation with Hanoi Agricultural University and Hue University of Agriculture and Forestry

Goals and objectives:

The Asia Institute of Technology (AIT) staff will work together with faculty from HAU and HUAF to identify the natural resources research and training issues in the highlands areas of Central and Northern Vietnam in order to conceptualize the subject matter and direction for a new graduate program in integrated natural resources management that would be offered at both Vietnamese universities. The masters degree curricula will be jointly prepared by AIT, HAU and HUAF faculty, and a detailed program will be developed that outlines activities for the first three to five years of the new graduate program.  An important feature of the program will be the collaborative sharing of research, policy dialogue, and publications.  As part of the research process, one faculty member each for HAU and HUAF would develop a doctoral dissertation on a selected issue at AIT.
