Laos' vanishing forests

“Forest cover has declined from 70 percent to 43 percent over the last 50 years, largely due to clearing of lowland forest for permanent agriculture and unsustainable logging. a recent report from the World Bank Report has said.

"If no action is taken to change this trend, Lao’s forests will dwindle to 31 percent by 2020,” the WWF has further reported.
