One strategic plan 2017-2021


The One Strategic Plan 2017-2021 represents the programmatic and operational framework for delivering United Nations (UN) support to the Government over the next five years and sets out how the UN will deliver as one in support of national development priorities. The Plan is aligned with the Socio-Economic Development Strategy 2011-2020, the Socio-Economic Development Plan 2016-2020, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Viet Nam’s international human rights commitments.

In preparation, the UN conducted an Independent Review of the One Plan 2012-2016, a Common Country Assessment, a Consultative Review of the Role, Position and Partnerships for the UN in a Lower Middle-Income Context, a strategic planning process and extensive consultations with the Government, development partners and other stakeholders.

Final Report: Independent Review of the One Plan (2012-2016)


The One Plan (2012-2016) was co-signed between the Government of Viet Nam and 17 UN agencies in March 2012 and is meant to act as the main programmatic and operational framework for delivering UN support to the Government of Viet Nam. This review was commissioned by the One Plan Steering Committee (OPSC) in Viet Nam and planned for the second half of 2015, with over one full year left for implementation, to allow for lessons learned to feed into the planning and design of the new One Plan. Its intended users include members of the One Plan tripartite structure, mainly the Government of Viet Nam, the UN Country Team (UNCT) and donors that have supported or are interested in supporting the One Plan initiative in the country.

The Management Response, agreed between the Government and UN Country Team in Viet Nam, contains key actions that are being implemented in response to the Review’s recommendations.

Harsh punishment for child offenders doesn’t prevent further criminality

The age at which a child, can be held criminally liable is a controversial issue around the world. Within Viet Nam, this issue is currently being grappled with in the Penal Code amendments. Some argue that a "get tough on crime" approach is necessary to punish children to prevent further criminality.

However, international research shows that because of their developmental stages, labelling and treating children as criminals at an early age can have serious negative impacts on their development and successful rehabilitation.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December


Thirty-five years since the emergence of AIDS, the international community can look back with some pride.  But we must also look ahead with resolve and commitment to reach our goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.

There has been real progress in tackling the disease. More people than ever are on treatment.  Since 2010, the number of children infected through mother to child transmission has dropped by half. Fewer people die of AIDS related causes each year.  And people living with HIV are living longer lives.

The number of people with access to life-saving medicines has doubled over the past five years, now topping 18 million. With the right investments, the world can get on the fast-track to achieve our target of 30 million people on treatment by 2030.  Access to HIV medicines to prevent mother to child transmission is now available to more than 75 per cent of those in need.


The secretary-general's message for the International Day to End Violence against Women and Girls


25 November 2016 - At long last, there is growing global recognition that violence against women and girls is a human rights violation, public health pandemic and serious obstacle to sustainable development.  Yet there is still much more we can and must do to turn this awareness into meaningful prevention and response.


UNIDO Director General's Op-Ed Article to media on the occasion of UNIDO's 50th anniversary


Did you know that in Viet Nam, the net flow of foreign direct investment increased from USD1billion in 2003 to USD10 billion in 2008, and that by 2015 reached USD23 billion?  Or that the total value of exports rose from USD2 billion in 1990 to USD72 billion in 2010, to reach USD162 billion in 2015? These impressive figures highlight the country’s robust economic success, providing a boost to the economy and employment.

These accomplishments are largely due to the reforms undertaken by Viet Nam since Doi Moi in 1986 which liberalized the economy, attracted foreign investment, fostered exports and reduced poverty. To prepare for reform, Viet Nam received extensive technical assistance from the international community, including from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), well before 1986 and, more precisely, since 1978.

For more than 35 years, UNIDO has been sharing international best practices to help Viet Nam develop inclusive and sustainable industry. With more than USD100 million in expenditure, UNIDO’s technical cooperation activities have been carried out across a broad range of fields, including support to the private sector and technical and industrial research organizations, facilitation of technology transfer, trade capacity-building, human resource development, environmental protection, energy efficiency, investment promotion and responsible business practices.
