  • Livelihoods in Lao PDR are diverse owing to a complex topography and the flows of the Mekong River basin. Over 40 unique livelihood groups exist in the country, each with a unique resilience profile.

  • The livelihoods with greatest climate resilience are those with sufficient access to financial capital (and wealth) and land, those which are highly diversified, and those which do not rely on rainfed agriculture. Focusing on activities linked to these characteristics will enhance community resilience.

  • Generally, livelihoods dependent on highland paddy are among the least resilient in part due to the rugged terrain and remoteness which limits access to land and additional livelihood activities. Communities dependent on highland paddy are also among the most severely affected by climate -related risks.

cover-gender-climate-financeThis publication confirms the shared commitment of ADB and the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) to mainstreaming gender equality in climate change and showcases how this priority is being integrated into the design of ADB’s CIF projects.

Helping women become more resilient to the impact of climate change, acknowledging their key role and encouraging them to participate in responding to the challenges of climate change, and ensuring that they benefit from climate change financing investments are priorities for ADB as part of its commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of women. This aligns with the CIF's imperative to mainstream gender into climate action for reasons of efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimately for the goals of equity and inclusion towards climate-resilient, low-carbon development in developing countries.
