Evaluation of SLU-Vietnam collaborations 1977-2018

Last changed: 11 September 2020

An evaluation of SLU’s research and capacity development collaborations with Vietnam was made from October 2019 until the end of February 2020.


The purpose of the evaluation was to learn from these past collaborations, and identify and document results generated through them. Focus of the study was on initiatives within the sectors relevant to agriculture, rural development, and forestry. The time scope for the study was 1977-2018.

The evaluation was conducted by a consultant with expertise from Swedish development cooperation, research development cooperation, evaluations and Vietnam. Several data-collecting methods were used. Data were gathered via sources such as publication databases and other public available databases and sources. The consultant carried out a web-based survey targeted to Vietnamese MSc and PhD graduates within these collaborations. She conducted interviews with key people at SLU that had been involved in collaborations with Vietnamese actors, with Vietnamese MSc and PhD graduates, senior researchers and other staff which had been part of the collaborations or others that were expected to have benefited from the collaborations.
