The 2030 Agenda was adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2015, whereupon countries were encouraged to take ownership of the process of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in light of their respective national realities, capacities, and priorities. "Lao PDR National Workshop on Sustainable Development Goals" aims to support preparation of National Roadmap for the 2030 Agenda Impl Implementation by offering a platform for government officials to discuss how these global goals and targets could be practically incorporated into national planning.

This workshop is co-organised with the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) and the Ministry of the Planning and Investment (MPI) of Lao PDR, and will gather participants from various line ministries & other relevant stakeholders directly involved in the SDGs process in Lao PDR.

Participants benefited from input presentations and will take part in working groups to discuss localising SDGs into National Policy. The ultimate aim of the workshop is to contribute to the national implementation process in Lao PDR by providing the platform for mutual learning and cooperation.
