Overview of Subprojects

Overview of Subprojects

TABI supports a wide range of subprojects to demonstrate and test methods of agro-biodiversity and agro-ecosystem approaches to livelihoods, income generation and natural resource management. These subprojects are mainly managed by Government of Laos Provincial and District staff - but are open to any interested and capable stakeholders - and generally involve small grants for village initiatives under a number of key themes.

 

Phase 1 (May 2009 - June 2012)

During Phase 1, TABI supported 50 subprojects in three provinces. Many of these subprojects were presented at an agro-biodiversity forum held in Xieng Khouang in February 2012 (presentations available here). For a full list of Phase 1 subprojects and links to subproject factsheets download the Phase 1 Subprojects List.

 

Phase 2 - Current Phase (July 2012 - June 2016)

Phase 2 subprojects are currently underway. The budget provided to these Phase 2 subprojects so far is USD $228,770. For summarised information download the list of current Phase 2 (July 2012 - June 2016) subprojects and the Phase 2 Subproject Snapshot document.
