Caritas Luxembourg in Lao PDR (Caritas)

From Vulnerability to Resilience (V2R)

Last updated:2011-12-07 11:26:59

The goal of the project is to move from Vulnerability to Resilience.  Success (indicators of resilience) will bathe ability to adapt to change, the ability to manage hazards, the ability to secure sufficient food, and the ability to move out of poverty.

The goal will be achieved through the pursuit of four objectives:

- Increasing sustainable livelihoods (Agricultural, Health, Education, Income Generation Activities (IGAs)

-Improving preparedness for, and management of hazards & stresses (HCVA,  CBDRM, District Disaster Fund)

- Reducing future uncertainty (Forestry, Lifeskills Development)

- Enhancing good local governance (Gender Equality, Village Development Planning, Village Development Funds, Support to Handicraft Groups)


The project methodology is mainly ‘bottom up’.  This means, wherever possible, the needs as expressed by villagers, and especially by primary target groups (the poorest and women), are the primary determinants of decisions regarding project objectives, results, activities, and methodology.
