Abstract:

An analysis is made of the costs and planning and operating requirements for establishing temporary villages for South Vietnamese refugees while their home villages are being secured for GVN control. Annual costs for a village having no outside income are projected, which can be reduced significantly by locating the village where jobs are available and by developing village production. Planning for economic viability and for qualified, reliable administrative personnel is a prerequisite. Refugee villages offer an opportunity to expand the educational system and develop a labor force where workmen are in short supply.
