Laos depends heavily on rice based agriculture systems and there is evidence that the traditional diversified diet and income base is being eroded, resulting in a negative effect on the livelihoods of the people. The opportunity to gather food in forests is diminishing and dietary diversity is being narrowed. In order to gain a better understanding of the relationship between this situation and access to and use of PGRFA, a project entitled “Plant Genetic Access and Utilization: Understanding and Contributing to Sustainable Livelihoods in Lao PDR” was carried out in the Vientiane province (May 2005 to February 2006).
