An international team of researchers headed by CMI has evaluated the "Comprehensive Development Framework" (CDF) in Vietnam. The project commissioned by the World Bank is one of six country cases conducted as part of a multi-stakeholder evaluation of implementation of the CDF. The study focuses on recent changes in national development policies and plans and government-donors relations. There is commitment to major reforms, but the report suggests that development plans need to express politcial choices in more unambiguous ways and formulate realistic targets that give clearer policy direction.
