The United Nations Country Team Lao button

The United Nations Country Team in  Lao PDR, consisting of all the UN specialised agencies, funds and programmes working in the country, as well as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, supports the localisation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Lao PDR's national development targets through sustainable and equitable socioeconomic development. The Country Team works as one to help the government and people of the Lao PDR fight poverty by ensuring a rights-based approach to development, supporting sustainable use of natural resources and preservation of cultural heritage, and promoting human rights, gender equality and good governance. The UN focusses its assistance on the most vulnerable and poor, in particular women, children and youth.

In support of the national development goals, the UN Country Team collaborates with the Government and the broader development community, including civil society and private sector. The work of the UN in Lao PDR is guided by the Lao PDR-United Nations Partnership Framework

The UN Country Team is led by the UN Resident Coordinator. Find out more about the Resident Coordinator’s Office
