Agrarian land-use transformation in northern Laos

Farmers in northern Laos have been experiencing a rapid transformation from subsistence agricultural production to intensive cash crop cultivation over the last decade. The current research examines land-use change patterns and the driving forces behind farmer’s decisions regarding changing land use and selecting crops, particularly in areas along the new North-South Economic Corridor that passes through Luang Namtha and Bokeo provinces in northwestern Laos.
