Guided by the global UNDP Strategic Plan (2022 – 2025) and UNDP Country Programme for Lao PDR (2022 – 2026), UNDP in Lao PDR works closely with the line Ministries, mass organizations, civil society, development partners, and the private sector at both national and sub-national levels in pursuit of the national socio-economic development priorities defined in Lao PDR’s five-year National Socio-Economic Development Plan (NSEDP) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The UNDP’s work is strongly focused on the provision of policy advice and technical support to the Government of Lao PDR in the design and implementation of national legislation and strategies across four broad Priority Pillars – (1) inclusive growth and reduced inequalities, (2) UXO (Unexploded Ordnance) clearance and risk education, (3) natural resources, climate change and disaster risk reduction, as well as (4) effective, responsive, and accountable governance.
UNDP has a long history of working in Lao PDR. UNDP’s comparative advantage has been its ability to work closely with a broad range of government and local-level institutions at all levels. The new UNDP country programme is aligned with the 9th NSEDP and is anchored in UNDP’s long-term partnership with the Government of more than four decades. The new programme builds on the achievements of the previous CPD (COUNTRY PROGRAMME DOCUMENT) that saw the incorporation of the SDGs into the national planning architecture. It will aim to support Lao PDR recover from the economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and continue its transition from LDC (Least Developed Country) status, with a particular emphasis on supporting inclusive growth and reducing inequality.
The UNDP Strategic Plan embraces the complexity of development and commits the organization to helping countries find faster, more durable solutions to?achieve Agenda 2030. Important development trends like urbanization, climate change, and rising inequalities pose significant challenges on the path to achieve the 2030 agenda of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
