Notes
  • The People’s Democratic Republic of Lao (Lao PDR), landlocked between Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, China, and Viet Nam in the core of Southeast Asia, accounts for a population of some 5.8 million over a total surface of 236,800 square kilometers. Latest estimates would place poverty rates at around 39 percent of households (ADB 2002). With an estimated per capita income of $320, Lao PDR stands among the poorest countries in Asia. Inequality, measured by an estimated Gini coefficient of some 0.36 (UNDP 2004) is high for such a low level of income. Lao’s set of basic human development indicators rank the country 133 out 177 states in the Human Development Index (UNDP 2005).
