This village-level Environmental and Social Management Plan (VL-ESMP) for the Phadai village
located within the Northern Annamite landscape is the first one that was developed in the
context of the Lao Landscape and Livelihood Project (LLL).
The objective of this VL-ESMP is to identify potential adverse environment and social (ES) risks
and impacts of activities conducted with support from the LLL project and appropriate measures
to avoid and mitigate them. Relevant activities addressed by the VL-ESMP include for example
village and field visits by project staff, volunteers and consultants for community engagement,
land use zoning, community action planning and initial livelihood support, but also for forestry
related activities such as surveys, boundary demarcation and patrolling.
