Pact is working in Laos to ensure socially and environmentally responsible development as the country grows.
Through the Sustainable Infrastructure Partnership, Pact works with governments in the Lower Mekong region to build capacity for managing the impacts of environmental change. The program supports planners and policymakers in the use of technical and conceptual tools to better understand how pressures on land and water resources are affecting local populations. SIP provides training in applying cumulative impact assessment, enables collaboration for monitoring and managing socioeconomic data, and promotes sharing of data and information about water resources.
Through the Mekong Connections project, Pact is helping to build an engagement network of key stakeholders to foster transboundary collaboration and information-sharing among local voices on key policy challenges facing the Mekong region.
