Mission Statement

Supporting the smallholder farming model in Laos

Program Description

Three axes of engagement for supporting smallholder farming AVSF began working in Laos in 2010 on projects addressing the major challenges of the future for smallholder farmers. These projects are in line with AVSF’s prior experience in Southeast Asia and the skills that it has developed through its activities in Cambodia and Vietnam.
  • Supporting small-scale livestock farming and animal health: small-scale livestock farming plays a fundamental role in smallholder families, especially for the most vulnerable among them. Faced with a lack of adequate animal health services, AVSF calls on its proven past experience to train and install village veterinary health assistants and to support the central services.
  • Sustainably managing natural resources: pressure on natural resources (slash-and-burn farming, development of concessions, etc.) is putting the country’s prospects for future development in danger.
  • Promoting smallholder production: AVSF supports the integration of new farmers groups into local and international markets.

Sustainably managing natural resources: pressure on natural resources (slash-and-burn farming, development of concessions, etc.) is putting the country’s prospects for future development in danger. AVSF, along with the mountain-dwelling communities of northern Laos, supports the implementation of new regulations for sustainable agricultural management and practices that allow for better integration of crop and livestock farming.
Promoting smallholder production: AVSF supports the integration of new producer organizations into local and international markets.
