OVERVIEW

Being the second most disadvantaged region in the country, the Central Highlands is among the areas where most of the ethnic minority groups reside. This study aimed to capture multiple employment stories in the Central Highlands in order to identify economic challenges as well as opportunities in the Central Highlands and nearby regions. The study examined jobs, employment and livelihood opportunities through both supply and demand for labor among the ethnic minorities. As coffee plantations remain the major source of income in the region, the study emphasized the focus on the coffee industry through approximately 100 interviews with coffee enterprises, coffee growers, workers frequently hired, as well as seasonal labors. The study covered three provinces: Dak Lak, Dak Nong, and Quang Ngai. The study’s findings also served as an important resource to the World Bank’s dialogue with Ministry of Planning and Investment regarding the requested poverty reduction programs in the Central and Central Highlands regions.
