Purpose: This project aims at improving freshwater biodiversity and promoting sustainable livelihoods that better manage natural resources, leading to reduced poverty in 10 communities living in the Xebanghien River basin, Savannakhet province, Lao PDR. Key activities include setting up fish conservation zones (FCZs) and fisheries management committees (FMCs), developing women-led alternative livelihoods models and advocating with policy makers to further support the establishment of fisheries co-management structures throughout the country. Fish stocks and fish biodiversity have improved and poverty reduced in ten villages in the Xebanghien River basin through effective community-based conservation of freshwater resources and alternative livelihood models
