SNV has been in Lao PDR since 1993 and was established as an independent organisation in 2004. We operate under an agreed framework with the Government of Lao PDR. We are well positioned within the 'National Socio-Economic Development Plan' and the 'National Growth and Poverty Eradication Strategy'.

Our advisory work focuses on agri-food, energy, and water sectors. 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 is implemented across the country's north, south, and central provinces.
