Action plan for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in Agriculture by Lao people Democratic republic: an important guide for developing countries

Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) is a landlocked country of 236 800 km2 located in mainland Southeast Asia. Socio-economically, Lao PDR is among the least developed countries (LDC) in the world. Almost 80 percent of its population   live in rural areas and depends on subsistence agriculture. 

Smallholders and landless poor in Lao PDR face high risk of natural hazards and climate change. Over 95 percent of the farming systems are vulnerable to flooding, drought and delayed onset of the rainy season 

To reduce the vulnerability of agriculture to disasters and climate change the Government of Lao PDR and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) has developed  Plan of Action for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in Agriculture(2014-2016). The Plan of Action identifies priorities and working mechanisms for enhanced risk reduction in agriculture, livestock, forestry and fisheries. 

It is comprehensive plan and part of Agriculture Development strategy 2011-20. This document will provide guidance to those countries where agriculture being  the main source of livelihood is under the threat of  different kind of natural hazards and climate change vulnerabilities.
