Between 2004 and 2011, three large Vietnamese-owned rubber concessions (10,000 hectares each) were developed in southern Laos. They have resulted in various well-documented social and environmental impacts. Remote sensing was used to map these rubber plantations, including when different parts were developed. The actual locations of the plantations only partially fit with the area that the government of Laos approved for development.
