Improved farming yield through permaculture results in less stress on forest’s biodiversity, and better livelihoods for the farmers.

Permaculture integrates traditional culture and behaviors with up to date agricultural techniques to maximize yield and production in the most eco- friendly way. It’s especially suitable for small-scale landholders in difficult land situations and integrates livestock and recycling techniques to maximize crop-yield with proper watershed management. The aim of project is to improve family yields through permaculture that will results in less stress on forest’s biodiversity and better livelihood for farmers through climate-smart innovative agro-ecology. Friends of Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden will develop the permaculture demonstration, training and research site that will empower farmers, NGO and government staff through practical sessions. With smallholder farmers making up 80 percent of the population in Lao PDR, this will be a critical development for the region and enhance better yield and ecological sound techniques that will contribute to improved biodiversity.
