  2. 2. SNV’s strategic sector focus in Lao PDR • Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFP) provide a key coping strategy for some 80% of the poor to secure food  local use: USD 200 million/year (53 USD/person/year)  local sales: USD 56 million/year  export value: USD 5.9 million (2005) • NTFPs prominent on government and development agendas • Large potential for value adding in NTFP value chains potentially benefiting poor and other actors • To focus interventions SNV’s value chain choices are: bamboo, paper mulberry and rattan shoots SNV Strategy Launch 13 June 2008 2
  3. 3. Impact target 2010 for SNV Lao • Income gains for poor NTFP collectors targeting directly 10,000 households living under/on the poverty line and increase employment with 3,600 new jobs, by:  more efficient value chains = raising production, income and employment = increasing prices + volumes of NTFP trade (bamboo prices are predicted to increase 100% within 1-2 years)  sustainable production from managed forests and domestication, improved quality, timely delivery, adding value through product processing.

  4. 4. Impact target 2010 for SNV Lao • Improved capacity and leadership of 250 people working for and in the value chains, by:  more transparent quota and registering systems giving a better overview of NTFP trade flows and increased tax revenue for government = better service delivery.  community participation in forest management (empowerment)  wider range of business service providers and capacity builders available to the NTFP sub-sector.
