1. How can agriculture be sustainable?

According to an ecological definition of sustainable agriculture by Professor Stephen R. Gliessman at UCSC, it means “a system that is concerned with and affects food production, farming, balance environmental stability, social relevance, and economic viability among factors, both in breadth and in length (multiple actors and generations of participants).


More broadly, agricultural ecosystem sustainable development is when we maintain the natural resource base and rely very little on manufactured products outside the ecosystem. Manage diseases and pests through internal regulatory mechanisms, and the ecosystem needs to recover from disturbances (even damage) caused by farming and harvesting.


2. SDGs and agriculture in Vietnam

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, are universal targets designed to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity in each UN member state by 2030. These are also the goals of UN is working on in Viet Nam.

Reaching the SDG targets simply will not be possible without a strong and sustainable agricultural sector. More than just its direct impact on hunger and malnutrition, our food system is also linked to other development challenges being addressed in the SDGs.


Vietnam is striving to become a responsible and sustainable producer and supplier of food and fresh fruit under a agricultural strategy and rural development for 2021-2030.


Vietnam agriculture should develop effectively and sustainably in terms of economy, society and environment. And all of sectors will bring into resources like soil, water, local culture and innovations.

  • Pillar 3: Agriculture that fails to protect and improve rural livelihoods and social well-being is unsustainable;
