[en] Based on livelihood approach and using both livelihood strategy participatory
assessment and household survey data this study mainly focus on assessment of evolution of
livelihood strategy and income of households in the Coastal Sandy Zone of Thua Thien Hue
Province. Findings indicated that livelihood strategies are very dynamic and considerable
difference between the wealth categories of households and among the study sites. Although
agriculture –based strategy is one of the most popular among the livelihood strategies there are
considerable changes. Thanks to more specialization on livestock - non-farm business –
aquaculture the better-off category has increased rapidly their income during 2003-2008 period.
By contrast, due to more dependence on food crop, wage work and migration, income of the
poor slowly improved at the same period. These findings implicate that in the context of rural
development, support policies introduced by government have positively influenced on
household income, but these general policies cannot meet the development needs from various
locations as well as different household categories because there is marked difference in
livelihood assets, human source, landholding, financial and social capitals in particular.
