ADB-Lao PDR Partnership Strategy

The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012-2016 for the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) is anchored on the country's Seventh National Socio-Economic Development Plan, 2011-2015. The strategic focus of the CPS is shaped by the country's specific requirements and capabilities. It is designed to help the government diversify the economy in a sustainable, inclusive manner.

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2014-2016 for the Lao PDR supports inclusive and sustainable growth and poverty reduction through four priority sectors (agriculture and natural resources; education; energy; and water supply and sanitation and other municipal services) and through more effective public sector management as a crosscutting concern.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
