Climate change vulnerability assessment for Beung Kiat Ngong Ramsar Site, Lao PDR

Complete Title: 
Climate change vulnerability assessment for Beung Kiat Ngong Ramsar Site, Lao PDR
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

In 2014, IUCN carried out a vulnerability assessment of the impacts of climate change on the Ramsar site at Beung Kiat Ngong in southern Lao PDR. The overall description of the wetland ecosystem and its components were drawn from the Ramsar profiles of the wetland and the recent biodiversity surveys. The statistics related to the local communities and their perceptions about climate change were drawn from consultations with the communities in each of the eight core villages located around the wetland which are dependent upon its natural resources. The vulnerability assessments, which generally followed the CAM methodology developed by ICEM in the earlier studies, focused on the wetland habitats and ecosystem components that were directly used by the local communities.
