Field Support Services are managed locally and provide essential support in Vietnam to assist in the planning, delivery and monitoring of Canada’s international development assistance to that country. The services include expert advice on: (1) socio-economic policies; (2) analyzing development issues, needs, and strategies; (3) technical support; (4) project monitoring; and (5) logistical and administrative services.

Expected results 

Although initiatives such as these serve as important mechanisms to support the effective delivery of Canada’s development assistance, no direct development outcomes are attributable to them.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of March 2022 include: (1) provided support services in thematic areas of gender equality, environment and climate change, agriculture, public-private partnerships, banking and impact investing; (2) provided technical support to project team leads in project implementation (e.g. meetings and reviews of project documents); and (3) produced many analytical products, including a climate change and biodiversity scoping study, a review of small and medium-sized enterprises in Vietnam – issues and challenges; an analysis on digital transformation for businesses in Vietnam, including micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, social impact businesses and cooperatives; and a retrospective study – Canada’s 30 years of development programming in Vietnam.
