A Case Study of the Lao PDR Forest Investment Program : SUFORD-SU Project (English)

This case study reviews thematic areas of the World Bank (WB) implemented Forest Investment Program (FIP) sustainable forestry for rural development - Scaling Up (SUFORD-SU) project, which will conclude March 2020. Data collection combines a review of available primary and secondary documentation with in-country discussions with key stakeholders. Findings reflect the main contributions of the SUFORD-SU project with regard to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+), participatory sustainable forest management, village livelihoods development, social safeguards, governance and law enforcement, and finally private sector and stakeholder coordination.
