dc.description.abstractCambodia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, and Viet Nam share many agrarian similarities, macroeconomic constraints, and development challenges. But they also have the opportunity now to harness the potential of their economies by introducing reforms to increase productivity and competitiveness in the agriculture sector. In this collaboration between the Asian Development Bank Institute and Agence Française de Développement, national practitioners and regional experts propose specific policies to boost agricultural productivity in thecountries of the lower Mekong. The volume identifies common priorities for agricultural productivity, including improving agricultural bureaucracies and regimes; moving into organic and niche products; promoting farmer organizations, contract farming, and seed industries; and implementing certified international food and safety standards
