LAO PDR - Food Market Study and Preliminary Household Level Survey on the Impact of Higher Food Prices on Household Food Security, November 2008

The overall objective of the study and survey was to gain a deeper and up-to-date understanding of food markets in the Laos, focusing mainly on the dominant staple food (rice), and to obtain preliminary indications into the impact of higher food prices on household food security in order to serve as a guide to WFP’s short-to-medium term decisions and strategies regarding amending, reinforcing or expanding current food security and/or satefy net programmes in Laos in response to the food security shock of higher food prices.
