Source(s):  Sustainable Mekong Research Network, the (Sumernet)

This policy brief assesses climate risks for small-scale farmers in Lao PDR, their vulnerability, response strategies and adaptive capacity, and proposes some recommendations for the local government offices at the provincial and district levels to: develop a policy framework and program of action for disaster risk management and climate change adaptation; emphasize climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction and management in local development plans; focus on capacity building, training and education; raise farmers’ awareness and enhance their adaptive capacity; and provide alternative livelihoods.
