Vol. 134: Hang Bui, Thi Minh: Resettling Farm Households in Northwestern Vietnam


Livelihood Change and Adaptation

The book presents a study about how the Son La Hydropower Project in northwestern Vietnam has affected the livelihoods of both resettled and host households in a remote mountainous community. The book focuses on changes in livelihood assets, livelihood outcomes, land and income distribution, and factors enabling livelihood rehabilitation. The resettled households have experienced a substantial loss in natural capital, and as a result, experienced a significant decline in farm outputs and incomes. The livelihood adaptations shown by both the host and resettled households have been strongly conditioned by a lack of available livelihood assets and market access in the new location. As a result, it is questionable as to whether these households will be able to maintain their livelihood outcomes over the long run.
