Pesticide flows in Northern Laos - a geographic approach to vulnerabilities
This study was conducted in 2019 in Oudomxay province (Namor district) and allowed to :
- Develop a typology of the hydro-sedimentary connections within the context of slash-and-burn and irrigated paddy field farming system in Northern Laos.
- Formalize an innovative method to identify the main hydrological and pesticide flows at the scale of villages.
- Identify potential management measures to reduce, or even stop, the pesticide flows.
- Explore the use of mapping tools to modeling different types of vulnerabilities.
The wolf barb - Research study fact sheet
This fact sheet describes the biological traits of the endemic species Luciocyprinus striolatus, as well as the results of the distribution survey, the habitat description and the threat analysis done in 3 watersheds in Laos: the Nam Young / Nam Hing (Bolikhamxay), Nam Theun (Khammouane) and Nam Phak (Oudomxay).
The fact sheet is based on the results from the pilot project “Conservation Activities, Threat Analysis, and Participatory Biological Research for the Endangered and Data Poor Fish Species Luciocyprinus striolatus in Lao PDR”, implemented by FISHBIO, CCL and Anoulak Association, from September 2021 to August 2023, thanks to the support from the CEPF (Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund) and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN-Laos).
