This provides interesting insights into perceptions of Lao PDR’s current key development challenges, their causes, effects and priorities for the future of the country. The outcome of the crowdsourcing has been feeding into the design and operationalization of the Lao PDR – UN Partnership Framework (2017-2021), helping the UN strengthen its programme strategy.
