Average number of parcels per holding

The indicator measures the average number of parcels per holding in Lao. The data comes from the Lao Census of Agriculture 1998/99 and 2010/11. The Lao Census of Agriculture 2010/11 was the second agricultural census undertaken in the Lao PDR. Since the first in 1998/99, the agricultural sector underwent significant changes. This Census of Agriculture was implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry - MAF (http://www.maf.gov.la/), with support from the Lao Bureau of Statistics (LSB), and collected basic information on crop and livestock production from every household in the Lao PDR. Data are expressed in average number of parcels per holding. Data are available on the Laodecide platform (http://www.decide.la/en/)

Average precipitation (mm per year)

Average precipitation is the long-term average in depth (over space and time) of annual precipitation in the country, measured in millimeter per year. Precipitation is defined as any kind of water that falls from clouds as a liquid or a solid. The agriculture sector is the most water-intensive sector, and water delivery in agriculture is increasingly important. Data on irrigated agricultural land and data on average precipitation illustrate how countries obtain water for agricultural use.

Average score for the ten indicators of the legal security of indigenous and community lands - Community Lands

The average score for the ten indicators of the legal security of community lands is also provided. The average score is the sum of the indicator scores of a specific collective tenure type for a country divided by the total number of indicators scored (in most cases, this number is 10). This average score provides only a snapshot of the security of community land. It does not represent an index, in that the various indicators are not weighted based on their relative importance to secure tenure. Each indicator is assigned a score from 1 (-> Yes, the law addresses the issue fully) to 4 (-> No, the law does not address the issue.) ot Not applicable (-> N/A Not applicable is used in cases where the subject matter in question is non-existent.). The scoring of indicators is based exclusively on express legal provisions.

Average size of holdings (ha)

The indicator measures the average size of holdings (in hectares) in Lao. The data comes from the Lao Census of Agriculture 1998/99 and 2010/11. The Lao Census of Agriculture 2010/11 was the second agricultural census undertaken in the Lao PDR. Since the first in 1998/99, the agricultural sector underwent significant changes. This Census of Agriculture was implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry - MAF (http://www.maf.gov.la/), with support from the Lao Bureau of Statistics (LSB), and collected basic information on crop and livestock production from every household in the Lao PDR.

Bird species, threatened

Threatened species are the number of species classified by the IUCN as endangered, vulnerable, rare, indeterminate, out of danger, or insufficiently known. Birds are listed for countries included within their breeding or wintering ranges. The number of threatened species is an important measure of the immediate need for conservation in an area. Global analyses of the status of threatened species have been carried out for few groups of organisms. Only for mammals, birds, and amphibians has the status of virtually all known species been assessed. Threatened species are defined using the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) classification: endangered (in danger of extinction and unlikely to survive if causal factors continue operating) and vulnerable (likely to move into the endangered category in the near future if causal factors continue operating). The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species is widely recognized as the most comprehensive, objective global approach for evaluating the conservation status of plant and animal species.
