The Agro-biodiversity Initiative (TABI)

Projekt abgeschlossen

The Agrobiodiversity Initiative (TABI) is a new programme being developed over the past two years by SDC in the Lao PDR. It will directly address the escalating destruction of biodiversity resources which represent the foundation and safety net for the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of rural upland farmers in Laos. The design of the TABI is guided by basic principles drawn from outcomes of regional and global meetings on the implementation of Multilateral Environment Agreements, particularly the International Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and their practical application to farm level issues. The Initiative has five major components supporting 1) the implementation and reporting of the Lao PDR’s commitments to the CBD; 2) piloting and promoting community-level activities to enhance and conserve biodiversity resources in farming and adjacent landscapes; 3) improving access to and quality of NTFP markets; 4) local access and control over land and natural resources; and 5) the development of a knowledge, information and policy dialog system.
