As Vietnam enters into the 21 st century there is a
growing need to address
the role of local knowledge of highland ethnic minorities and their
livelihood security. This book critically examines the local knowledge of
the Yao ethnic minority of Lao Cai province in the face of this rapid and
difficult economic transition into the market economy. The Yao, along with
other highland minority groups are facing with increasing threats to their
livelihoods as their natural resources are facing over exploitation due in
part to top down government policies. Suggestions for improving
development policies are provided.
