EIB to help protect 1,400km roads in rural Lao PDR from climate change

Earlier today (April 1) Mr. Luca Lazzarolli, Director General of the European Investment Bank, formally agreed new support to improve 1,400km of currently unpaved roads in six provinces. This will enable parts of the national road network most vulnerable to a changing climate to be paved, elevated and stabilised. 

During the three-day visit to the Lao PDR, Mr. Lazzaroli signed a EUR 5 million Grant Agreement with H.E Dr Kikeo Chanthaboury on behalf of Government of the Lao PDR.
