      Poverty in Laos is shifting. Lao PDR remains one of the countries in the bottom tier of nations worldwide in terms of the perception of corruption, with low accountability of state institutions and, as recognized by the World Bank itself, Laos had an environment in which the state audit organization was weak. An integrated approach is crucial for progress across the multiple goals. Participants need to be involved in new research beyond this specific HSR experience. Because increasing numbers of people are involved in research projects in Lao PDR, the leaders are beginning to see the role of research.

      To promote more equitable growth, revenues from the resource sector need to be applied toward broader economic and social development.

When combined with further industrial activity, the decline in forest cover transformed the Lao PDR from a net sequester of CO2 in to a net emitter in The announcement that Laos had met its eligibility requirements follows decades of promises by the ruling Communist Party leadership that its stewardship of the economy would see the country graduate from the list by The various techniques for data collection were chosen accordingly, in order to capture both the perceptions among a larger group of people who would otherwise be difficult to access, and the more elaborate opinions of a select group of people familiar with the HSR programme.
