Background

UNDP promotes inclusive and sustainable development and works to reduce poverty in all its dimensions. Poverty Reduction, Livelihoods & UXO Unit of UNDP Lao PDR is working to strengthen capabilities and opportunities to reduce poverty and marginalization – focusing on the most vulnerable and excluded population groups – in ways that are sustainable from economic, social and environmental standpoints, while working closely with government, NGOs and private sectors of Lao PDR.

Jobs and livelihoods have emerged as a key concern in the discussions on the post-2015 development agenda. This is also reflected in the aspiration of 8th National Socio-Economic Development Program for Lao PDR which calls for growth that is inclusive and sustainable, incorporating productive capacities that create employment and livelihoods for the poor and excluded.

In addition, Lao PDR is, per capita, the most heavily bombed nation in the world. During the Indochina conflict in the 1960s and 1970s, it was the scene of extensive ground battles and intensive aerial bombardments. Records indicate that over two million tons of bombs were used, including more than 270 million cluster sub-munitions, and that up to 30% of them failed to explode. Some 40 years after the war ended unexploded ordnance (UXO) still poses a threat to Lao PDR. As well as causing deaths and injuries, UXO impacts on the lives of Lao people across the country by contributing to food insecurity in limiting safe access to potentially rich agricultural land.
