With the need for better connected and
coordinated actions among development stakeholders
who are implementing development projects in Laos,
this directory aims to provide stakeholders with access
to information about the availability of Civil Society
Organisations in Laos. It has been collected and
developed to assist Non Profit Associations, International
Non-Governmental Organizations, Donors, GoL and
otherstakeholdersin Laosin theirsearch for appropriate
information and implementing partners. We hope that
this publication can also assist development actors in
building new, or strengthening existing relationship in
support of their common development goals.
Thisisthe third version of the Directory of Lao CSOs
produced following a widespread demand. The design
has been adapted in response to feedback from the
users of previous versions. Version three is more concise
and the book is smaller in size to be handier to carry.
All CSOs known to the Lao CSO Network have been
invited to have their information included. Some
organisations have chosen not to be included.
For more information on a specific organisation,
we invite you to contact directly the management team
of the organisation. On-going and regular update of
CSO information can be found though visiting
the website and the PDF document can be free
download on the website (www.laocs-kis.org).
We would like to thank French Embassy
for providing the necessary financial support for this
publication. Our warm thanks to Lao CSOs Network
for the data collection work and to CSOs who provided
their organisational information for this directory.
With further demand and continued input from
the CSO community we hope to develop and expand
this collection of information further in the future.
