Their peculiar characteristics, difficulties, methodology and lessons learned.  

Between 2008 and 2012, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)/Office of the National Assembly (ONA) Project “Strengthening the capacity of representative bodies in Viet Nam (Phase III)” has supported more than 20 Provincial People’s Councils (PPCs) in conducting activities in support of public consultations and constituency relations.  After three years of piloting, PPC public consultation activities have produced a wealth of material identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the public consultations process. It showed that, in particular, the PPCs operating in mountainous regions and in areas with ethnic minorities face notable difficulties in conducting public consultation and constituency relation activities. These difficulties derive both from objective conditions and from internal elements of the local PPCs.  

This report seeks to summarize details of public consultation and constituency relation activities of PPCs in mountainous regions and areas with ethnic minorities. The report consolidates and analyses experiences of the aforementioned PPCs in overcoming difficulties in conducting public consultations and constituency relations. Finally, the report aims to contribute to improving public consultation and constituency relation activities through the provision of some recommendations.
