UN survey reveals collective response to national development priorities

15 November 2015 

The UN Country Team in Lao PDR is using 'crowdsourcing' to complement the country analysis that will serve as a baseline for the new Lao PDR – UN Partnership Framework 2017-2021.

The UN Country Team in Lao PDR is complementing the country analysis that will serve as a baseline for the new Lao PDR – UN Partnership Framework 2017-2021 with a "wisdom of crowds" approach, i.e. crowdsourcing.

This approach helps to generate alternative perceptions on Lao PDR's current key development issues, their causes, effects and priorities for the future of Lao PDR to 2021.

The crowdsourcing includes three phases of consultations – i) development issues and causes; ii) effects; iii) prioritization and scenarios – through brief surveys based on the innovative Futurescaper online platform.

The current analysis presents the results of the first phase of the survey, launched in July 2015 and widely disseminated to all stakeholders including international development partners, civil society, the government, the public at large and the UN Country Team.
