This report aims to illuminate the complex interactions at the heart of development cooperation. Eva Lindskog worked for SEI in Southeast Asia for 15 years, and her special focus, professionally and personally, was on Vietnam. Her work took her from policy advice on integrating social and environmental issues into the sustainable development agenda to field research in the houses of poor families displaced by a major hydropower project or struggling with the impacts of Agent Orange.

On another level, the report serves as a primer for researchers who want to better understand the context of modern Vietnam – its history and the factors that could shape its future development.
