Food security project results in improved local livelihoods

Vientiane Times, 9 Jan 2015

A five-year food security development project which recently ended has built up sustainable ways of making a living for local people in the Nhot-ou district of northern Phongsaly province, officials in charge of the project have concluded. Around 10,000 people in 39 villages have benefited directly from the 1.5 million euro project, which introduced activities to help local people make a living in sustainable ways. Linking Agriculture, Natural Resources Management and Nutrition (LANN), community-based trainings had been organised, according to a press release from the project. The LANN trainings combined with health and sanitation awareness raising campaigns to fight against preventable diseases, latrine construction and interventions in nutrition-sensitive agriculture such as home gardens, fruit trees and fish farming have enabled communities, women in particular, to improve their food security and nutrition strategies.
