    The Agro-Ecological Zoning (AEZ) methodology, developed by FAO and IIASA, is a well-established modeling system used for sustainable land-use planning, agricultural investments, and assessing climate change impacts on agriculture. PyAEZ is and open-source Python package developed by FAO with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), and in collaboration with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), which offers AEZ calculations for user to implement for their own AEZ analyses. The latest version, PyAEZ v2.1, is now available on GitHub and through the Global Agro-Ecological Zoning Data Portal and it was presented during a virtual event on 12 July 2023 with the objective to support land use planning and enhance the utilization of land resources at different scales.

    Agro-ecological zones
    Assessing alternatives for future cropping systems

    The leaflet presents the activities of the second component of the project “Strengthening Agro-climatic Monitoring and Information Systems (SAMIS)”. In collaboration with the Department of Agricultural Land Management (DALaM) under the Ministry of Agriculture (MAF) has, with the financial support of FAO Laos and technical support from the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) and FAO experts, produced the national level agro-ecological zoning (AEZ) mapping process. The AEZ aims to define the potential use of zones where crops can be growth based on climate, soil, crop cycle, and crop management practices, resulting in maps of suitability and potential yields. The maps have been generated using a software, called pyAEZ, produced with the project's support. The suitability maps for today and the future, using climate scenario as an input, are, in both technical standard and input data quality, state of the art. Lao People’s Democratic Republic is the first country, globally, to implement the AEZ system using national data and national capacity exclusively. The SAMIS AEZ delivery model has shifted demands for expertise to the regional and local levels. The AEZ allows policymakers to look ahead and adjust policies now to prepare for climate-related changes that will affect the prosperity of the country. Also, it helps to assess alternatives for future cropping systems and it guides establishing priority crop plan and future-proof land allocation to specific crop productions. Ultimately, the results from the scenario modeling will be uploaded to the Land Resources Information Management System (LRIMS).
