Lao PDR's and UNDP's COP23 side event on nature-based adaptation, South-South cooperation and circular economy.
The Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry creates a launching pad for a Branding Lao Promotion and Development Facility, benefitting local producers with better returns for their produce.
More than 300 participants were present, including high-ranking government officials from the central and provincial levels, development partners, representatives from the private sector, as well as national and international non-profit organizations.
The Government, in partnership with UNDP, UNCDF, and Switzerland have launched a programme aimed at strengthening service delivery that better responds to citizens’ needs.
Successful Lao young people and those who are on the way to achieving their dreams gathered in Vientiane for an evening of inspiration to discuss what it means to have a goal, and what it takes to achieve it.
“Having a goal isn’t wishing. It isn’t a faint hope or a vague dream that someday we’ll have or do or be. No, having a goal is much, much more” - Watch "This is Development: The Sustainable Development Goals in Lao PDR".
