The project will support the strategic objectives of the Government of Lao PDR - sustainable economic growth, accelerated social development and poverty eradication ? as set out in the country?s Sixth Socioeconomic Development Plan 2006-2010 (SEDP6). SEDP6 provides a coherent development framework focusing on and prioritizing a small number of sectors (including education) and accelerating reforms in key thematic areas such as capacity development, governance and private sector development. The project is also aligned with the ADB?s country strategy and program 2007?2011 (CSP), which seeks to promote pro-poor sustainable growth, foster social inclusiveness and improve governance. The core of the CSP ? a multi-partner move towards coordinated capacity development and program and/or sector-based approaches in core sectors ? is supported by the Vientiane Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and its associated country action plan.
