After the Boom: Responding to Falling Rubber Prices in Northern Laos

This study examines responses to this price drop by Lao rubber growers and state institutions in northern Laos. It also examines the reasons that prices are what they are, given that price volatility was identified as a risk during the mid-2000s, and that in at least some cases, steps were taken to protect contract farmers from falling prices. Drawing on 20 days of fieldwork in mid-2015 in five districts and seven villages of Luang Namtha and Oudomxai provinces, this study is one of the first efforts to connect an earlier body of research on the rubber-planting boom of the 2000s with the subsequent fall in prices. Its focus is on qualitative changes that have taken place and are currently continuing in northern Laos.
