As well as in Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, Pact is working in Laos to ensure socially and environmentally responsible development as the country grows. 

Our Mekong Partnership for the Environment project is working across the Lower Mekong region, using an integrated approach to promote equitable prosperity, the sustainable use of natural resources, and robust public participation through good environmental impact assessment policy and practice. We're strengthening local organizations and institutions, increasing the public’s access to information, and building dialogue and platforms for cooperation among stakeholders across the region, not just within countries.
