The IUCN Lao PDR Country Programme Agreement with the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) has supported the IUCN Lao PDR country office in recent years. Finishing in 2010, this agreement allowed IUCN Lao PDR to foster relationships with key partners, develop programme areas and respond to emerging regional, national and local issues. Some of the projects implemented by IUCN Lao as part of the CPA programme included involvement in supporting curriculum development at the National University of Laos, development of IUCN Lao PDR’s Business and Biodiversity Strategy, and relationship building with new partners, such as the National Assembly and mass media institutions.
