SNV has had a presence in Lao PDR since 1993, and established as an independent organisation in 2004. We operate under an agreed framework with the government of Lao PDR, and are well positioned within the 'National Socio-Economic Development Plan' and the 'National Growth and Poverty Eradication Strategy'.
Our advisory work focuses on Agricultural and Forest Products, Renewable Energy, and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene. In addition we run a sizable programme in the REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) sector. Across all of our areas of work, governance, gender equity and social inclusion are mainstreamed. Our work occurs within the north, south, and central provinces of the country.
