People, Livelihoods, and Development in the Xekong River Basin, Laos

Baird, Ian G. & Bruce Shoemaker; People, Livelihoods, and Development in the Xekong River Basin, Laos
This is a wide-ranging study that provides an overview of the area’s history and geography as well as the cultures and livelihood systems of the people living there. Central to the study is a detailed description of the acute social, cultural, economic and ecological challenges that locals are facing as a result of the rapid changes now taking place in the region. While these changes are being made in the name of “development”, in reality they often involve conflicts between outsiders and local communities over the use of the area’s natural resources. Taking a political ecology approach, the authors examine the complicated links between livelihoods and development. The book provides a sobering picture of the potential vulnerability and negative impact upon local cultures, livelihood systems and the natural environment if uncontrolled globalization and outside market forces continue to radically transform the Xekong River Basin.
