Abstract:
This document contains the local and ethnic knowledge of the Hmong people of Long Lan village, Luang Prabang province, Laos. It relates to community institutions in the management of natural resources, agricultural practices, and animal husbandry, as well as the behavior of the people towards natural ecosystems.

The document has been developed based on the lessons learned by the CHESH Lao Program (hereafter called CHESH Lao) of the Center for Human Ecology Studies of Highlands (CHESH), one of the predecessor organizations of the Social Policy Ecology Research Institute (SPERI), and relevant partners involved in research, experimental application and support for the sustainable development of the Long Lan community based on their cultural identity, ethnic knowledge and natural resources of Phou Sung from 1999 to present. These activities have been financially supported by ICCO - the Netherlands, and later Brot/BMZ-Germany, CCFD-France, and NLI-Germany.

Information in this document was collected, analyzed and summarized on the basis of CHESH Lao / SPERI's approach to promoting stakeholders participation, such as among Long Lan key farmers, village heads of Long Lan and communities in the Kuang Si watershed area, members of YIELD-AGREE, the Offices of Plantation, Planning of the Luang Prabang Provincial Agriculture and Forestry Office (PAFO), the Luang Prabang and Xieng Nguen District Agriculture and Forestry Office (DAFO), Pak Xuong College, Suphanuvong University, CHESH Lao and experts.

The fieldwork, analysis and synthesis of research findings for this document was financially supported by AliSEA/AFD/GRET through the project on "Promoting agroecology farming for self-reliant livelihood of local upland farmers through documenting the case of native eco-vegetables of the Hmong community of Long Lan village, Luang Prabang district, Luang Prabang province".
