Laos: Carbon reduction projects get underway
The Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) is cooperating with the Forestry Department to implement the Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests Programme (LEAF) in Laos.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed last week in Vientiane by SNV Country Director Ms Megan Ritchie and department Director General Dr Siranvanh Sawathvong.
The programme will be implemented for a period of four years and nine months, initially in Huaphan province and then in the southern provinces. LEAF takes a regional approach to strengthening forest management in six core countries – Laos, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea.
