ACCA in Vietnam
April 2010: These notes were taken during the assessment trip to visit ACCA projects being implemented by poor communities in Vietnam. The visit took place in April 2010, and was a chance for teams of community leaders and their support organizations from six other countries (Thailand, Nepal, Lao PDR, Philippines, Mongolia and Sri Lanka) - all of whom are involved in implementing their own city-wide ACCA upgrading projects - to meet their peers in Vietnam who are doing projects, learn more about the projects, see how they are progressing, compare notes and discuss together what the strong and weak points of the projects have been. Four cities: Vinh, Hai Duong, Viet Tri and Lang Son. But these joint assessments are also an opportunity to reflect on how all of us are working back in our own countries. This is a new kind of assessment process - a "two-way" assessment, in which we assess others and assess ourselves at the same time. And we have learned a lot and now have a much deeper understanding of the process in Vietnam. PDF 7 pages notes 77 Kbs
