Abstract: Ethnic minorities in Vietnam account for only 14% of the total population of Vietnam, but the proportion of poverty accounts for more than 52% of all poor households in the country. Based on an empirical research, the paper focuses on a specific ethnic minority group, Jarai people. Research results have shown that multidimensional poverty is not easily implemented in the context of changes in natural and social environments. Therefore, multi-dimensional poverty is both theoretical and scientific challenges, and creates obstacles to policy implementation in order to achieve efficiency in Vietnam’s commitment to implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) of the United Nations.
