Sustainable Development Goals Delivery: Lao PDR National Workshop

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
8-9 November 2016 Governance & Economy Department Asia-Europe Environment Forum (ENVforum) Sustainable Development



Venue:
Vientiane, Lao PDR

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2015, whereupon countries were encouraged to take ownership of the process of implementing the SDGs in light of their their respective national realities, capacities, and priorities. "Sustainable Development Goals Delivery: Lao PDR National Workshop" aimed to support this process by providing a platform for officials from the Lao PDR government to discuss how these global goals and targets could be incorporated into national planning.

This workshop was co-organised with the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) Lao PDR, and gathered participants from various line ministries, research institutions/universities, and development partners involved in the SDGs process in Lao PDR. Participants benefited from input presentations from international and locally-based experts, and took part in working groups to discuss localising SDGs into National Policy. The ultimate aim of the workshop is to enhance awareness among policymakers in Lao PDR on SDGs and its targets, as well as to identify enabling conditions for SDGs implementation.
