Average dietary energy supply adequacy (%) (3-year average)

This indicator is calculated by FAOSTAT/ESS and is part of the FAO Suite of Food Security Indicators -- Dimension: availability (http://www.fao.org/economic/ess/ess-fs/ess-fadata/en/#.WTlX9BPytPU). The indicator expresses the Dietary Energy Supply (DES) as a percentage of the Average Dietary Energy Requirement (ADER). Each country's or region's average supply of calories for food consumption is normalized by the average dietary energy requirement estimated for its population to provide an index of adequacy of the food supply in terms of calories. Analyzed together with the prevalence of undernourishment, it allows discerning whether undernourishment is mainly due to insufficiency of the food supply or to particularly bad distribution. The indicator is calculated in three year averages, from 1990-92 to 2014-16, to reduce the impact of possible errors in estimated DES, due to the difficulties in properly accounting of stock variations in major food. It thus provides an indicator of structural food supply adequacy (Source: Faostat - http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/FS).

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 protein supply (g/capita/day) (3-year average)

This indicator is calculated by FAOSTAT and is part of the FAO Suite of Food Security Indicators -- Dimension: availability (http://www.fao.org/economic/ess/ess-fs/ess-fadata/en/#.WTlX9BPytPU). The indicator measures the national average protein supply (expressed in grams per caput per day) and provides information on the quality of the diet. The indicator is calculated in three year averages, from 1990-92 to 2011-13, to reduce the impact of possible errors in estimated DES, due to the difficulties in properly accounting of stock variations in major food (Source: Faostat - http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/FS).

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.

This average score provides only a snapshot of the security of indigenous and community land.
