Improving forest and land-use management in order to implement REDD+ in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.

As a landlocked Least Developed Country, Lao PDR is highly vulnerable to climate change. Its economy is dependent on natural resources, especially forestry, agriculture, electricity generation and mining. Agriculture, forestry and fisheries account for 16 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and employs 64 percent of the Lao workforce. 

This project supports Lao PDR’s implementation of an ambitious REDD+- emission reductions programme after decades of losing tropical forest cover. It will strengthen an enabling environment for REDD+ by enhancing the availability of finance and strengthening the forestry sector’s legal and regulatory framework. It will also encourage deforestation-free agriculture and agroforestry by enhancing agricultural productivity.
