Urban-LEDS Country factsheet: Lao-PDR

Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) is increasingly shifting to a model of governance known as ‘sam-sang’ (3-build system), whereby responsibility is increasingly devolved to local administration levels (province, district and village). This poses an ideal opportunity to implement a well-integrated and vertically coordinated climate change response.

In particular, structured, practical and long-term capacity building programmes are needed for all tiers of government, as is the integration of climate change into sectoral policies and plans.
