Lao PDR Peat Ranger Training
Apr 4, 2022 - Apr 5, 2022
Awareness & Advocacy
The ASEAN Peat Ranger consists of selected champions in local communities/villages of eight ASEAN Member States (AMS). The selected champions will be provided with knowledge on peatland management which will then be transferred to other villagers through village meetings/events organized by training participants. The establishment of Peat Ranger aims to increase awareness and a better understanding of communities on sustainable peatland management.
People for Peat (PFP), in collaboration with Prof. Souvanna Phengsisomboun, will organize Peat Ranger Training in Lao PDR. Participants are communities living in Beung Kiat Ngong (BKN), a wetland Ramsar site in Laos. It is located in the Southern part of Laos, about 70 km from Pakse city, Champasak Province.
