Water and Wetlands

Water and Wetlands activities are holistic in scope, focusing on water-based and wet landscapes and associated resources, in addition to bodies of water and their multiple uses.

Using its convening power and position as a neutral body, IUCN Lao PDR is continuing its Nam work by bringing diverse stakeholders to the table to improve understanding of this resource, enhance effective governance and raise awareness of the rising pressures on Lao PDR's water resources.
Objectives:

  • Improved understanding of the ecosystems and livelihoods approach to water resource management;
  • Enhanced water-related governance processes and institutions for informed and effective policies and agreements; and
  • Raised profile of the increasing pressures on water-related resources.
