COVID-19 Response and Recovery:
To support the tourism sector to respond to and rebound from COVID-19, GREAT gathered over 40 participants including GREAT tourism partners, government agencies, tour operators and leading international and domestic experts in a tourism sector meeting yesterday.
In Vietnam, the latest national survey on violence against women in 2019 found that two in every three women have experienced at least one form of violence by their husband/partner in their lifetime. Gender-based violence is rooted in gender inequality and recent COVID-19 lockdowns may have exacerbated gender-based violence, especially domestic violence.
Five online workshops on management and implementation of the National Target Programs in the 2021-2030 period were recently hosted by the Finance and Monetary Department, Ministry of Planning and Investment with support from GREAT, facilitated by GREAT partner CARE International in Vietnam
GREAT partner CRED recently organised leadership development training courses, including online sessions for 80 leaders of cooperatives, collective groups and businesses working in agricultural and tourism sectors in Lao Cai and Son La, with technical support from IChange Center.
