Fact finding mission on "Support for the development of the cashew sector in Dak Lak"

Cashew farming in Vietnam has been a lucrative business in the past years. The cashew processing industry has undergone a fast development. Up to 1994, Vietnam did not have enough capacity to process all internally produced cashew nuts to kernel. Around 20 % of the raw cashew nuts production was exported to India and other countries for processing. Looking at the total area under cultivation, total processing capacity and total production output in tons, Dak Lak ranks in the mid-range of provinces active in the cashew nuts business. . Both projects consider the cashew nut sector in Dak Lak as one with potential to further increasing income to farmers and creating jobs in the processing industry. . The objectives were: 1. To collect detailed information on the cashew nut sector in Dak Lak comprising the different actors in the value chain as well as describing supportive institutions and policies; 2. To evaluate the feasibility of the intervention ideas as proposed in the EDE study (2005); 3. To discuss these issues with relevant stakeholders and come up with a consensus based intervention strategy (action plan); and 4. To propose mechanisms, policies or adequate solutions to the province as a basis for the development of the provincial cashew development strategy.
