According to many previous survey reports, the problem of landless and near landless farmers in Mekong Delta that were serious in 1998 seemed to be increased but slower in recent years in the surveyed areas. Most of them are very poor. The report by University of Economics (Hanoi) has revealed that ï¾“In 1997, 5.69% of population in 12 provinces of Mekong Delta are landless and 8.71% with very little land and the problem is worseningï¾”. Attributed to the problems are many factors, including historical, socio-economic ones. The Communist Party and the Government of Vietnam have issued policies and taken measures to solve the problem. However, these policies and measures are limited to solving the dilemma.Due to this situation, the Farmer’s Association has conducted the project ï¾“Survey on landless and near landless farmers in Tra Vinh and Dong Thap provinces; recommend supported projects and solutions for the poor farmersï¾”. The project is funded by Oxfam GB and carried out by staff of Vietnam Farmer’s Association and by staff of Farmers Associations in two provinces.
