Forestry and agroecology in the mountains of northern Laos / districts of Viengkham and Pakxeng – Luang Prabang Province
After a first successful operation between 2009 and 2012, the goal of this project is to keep fighting against the poverty of people living in the mountains in northern Laos. For that purpose, the natural resources have to be rehabilitated, safeguarded and valued (water, soil, biodiversity).
The project will also adapt to climate change and mitigate its consequences (agricultural systems’ resilience, reduction of greenhouse gas emission and carbon sequestration).
Expected results:550 farming families supported in 20 villages of the Viengkham district, among the poorest in the country Budget :€880,000 over 2014-2018 Funding :AFD (French Development Agency), Fund Action Laos sheltered by Swiss Philanthropy Foundation, Fondation Ensemble, PAM, France Volontaires Project management :Agrisud (leader) and Etc Terra Partnerships :Etc Terra, SAEDA (Sustainable Agriculture & Environment Development Association), Université Souphanouvong de Luang Prabang, PAFO (Provincial Agriculture & Forestry Office Luang Prabang), Viengkham District
