Our Efforts in Laos

In this agriculture-based economy, our partnerships in Laos help entrepreneurs and food producers in vulnerable communities build skills and access opportunities in agribusiness—reducing food insecurity and driving community economic development. We collaborate with public and private sector partners to advance gender equality and inclusiveness and amplify women’s meaningful participation in social and economic life.

Strengthening Agribusiness

The Accelerating Women’s Empowerment program provides technical assistance in modern, climate-smart agricultural practices to increase productivity and competitiveness.
