This report presents the results of an investigation of the potential implications of Vietnam’s proposed Voluntary Partnership Agreement (VPA) on vulnerable stakeholder groups and households using a Livelihood Impacts Assessment (LIA) method. Vietnam is in the final negotiation stages towards signing a VPA with the European Union (EU) as part of the FLEGT (Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade) Action Plan. When the VPA is implemented, it will impact all enterprises engaged in timber harvesting, transport, processing and marketing, including households engaging in timber production and living on forest resources.

The main objectives of this ex-ante study were to:

·         assess the likely impacts of the VPA on vulnerable stakeholders

·         identify key social safeguard issues and responses

·         explore opportunities for enhancing livelihood outcomes

·         identify implementation risks and risk reduction and mitigation measures

The LIA methodology involves four main sequential stages, comprisingStage 1: Stakeholder and institutional analysis; Stage 2: Policy impacts analysis (also called Transmission channels analysis -TCA); Stage 3: Participatory theory of change analysis; and Stage 4: Development of a monitoring plan with an appropriate set of indicators; Stage 4 was not undertaken for the LIA of Vietnam.
