Pa Leaw Luang is a sub- district in Santisuk District, Nan Province. Its location is approximately 4 kilometers north of Suntisuk District Office and approximately 32 kilometers from the city of Nan Province. The sub-district cover 10,607 ha. It is situated on a valley floor between the mountain range to the east and west. Flat and gentle slope land accounts for less than 15 % of the entire sub-district. The altitude ranges from 600 to 1200 meters above sea level. Slope land is generally steeper than 35 percent. Generally, farmers’ household economies fall in the semi- subsistence category. Food security relies on farm produce and non- timber harvest from community forests while maize and para-rubber are the major sources of income. Apart from the bio- physical constraints that govern farming activities on slope land, farmers also have title legitimacy issues.
