Good practices in building pro-rural poor public and private partnership: What we can learn from Attapeu Province, Lao PDR

Good practices in building pro-rural poor public and private partnership: What we can learn from Attapeu Province, Lao PDR.

The main objective of this report is to analyze and learn from good practices and innovative strategies that have proven to be successful in the promotion of Pro-Rural Poor PPP in one of the poorest rural areas of Lao PDR, Attapeu province.

The structure of the report is as follows: the first chapter gives an overview of the general context in which the three successful experiences are embedded – i.e. geographical, socio-economic and cultural conditions in Lao PDR in general and in Attapeu province in particular. In this context, the operations of RLIP in the area will be presented(Chapter 2). Subsequently, the concept of PPP is introduced and applied to the case examples in Attapeu province.As a starting point for further reflections, successful strategies within these experiences will be highlighted. Thesepractices have the potential to improve rural livelihoods by opening new market access and generating alternativesources of income for the poor ethnic minority communities. For each case, specific lessons and recommendationswill be presented (Chapter 3). Subsequently, the LR methodology is presented as an effective tool to share and spread knowledge acquired in the field as well as to promote the adaptation and adoption of good practices in other contexts. Accordingly, two implementations of a LR on Pro-Rural Poor PPP in Attapeu will be described (Chapter 4). Finally, the report elaborates all the key lessons learned as well as challenges and opportunities for the strengthening of these kinds of model experiences. It comes up with conclusions and recommendations for practitioners who are interested in replicating innovative solutions among IFAD-funded or other projects addressing similar development challenges (Chapter 5).
