Laos intensifying efforts in agriculture climate change response

The government is accelerating efforts to boost farmers’ yields to meet national food security strategy and production targets by 2020 in response to global climate change.
Minister of Agriculture and Forestry Dr Lien Thikeo made the statement during a recent address to mark World Food Day.
He noted that Laos had been hit hard by natural disasters, including floods in the central and southern provinces, a plague of caterpillars which invaded maize crops, and an outbreak of African swine fever in many parts of the country.
