Taming Waters In Xayaboury

(KPL) Almost four years ago, UNDP had a project in Xayaboury province of northern Lao PDR to help farmers in their struggles to cope with climate change.  

This February, we returned to one of the villages to see how they have managed with changing weather conditions ever since.

The Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the global community in 2015, compels us at UNDP Lao PDR to take even more responsibility to ensure that our projects do not only offer a temporary sigh of relief to struggling communities in the Lao PDR, but that they serve as an enduring foundation on which they can begin to build a more sustainable future for themselves.
