sustainable and inclusive development in Lao PDR
Comité de Coopération avec Laos (CCL) is a French non-governmental organization based in Vientiane, Laos. Our main goal is to enhance rural development and contribute to poverty alleviation in Lao PDR. We have been running rural development programs in the northern uplands of Laos since 1980 in order to improve the livelihoods of Lao people, especially targeting upland families and women in remote areas.
What We Do
Over the past 40 years, we have been providing assistance and technical support to communities and local partners on sustainable agriculture, natural resource management, environment, WASH, health and nutrition in the provinces of Phongsaly, Oudomxay, Luang Namtha, Xiengkhouang, Sayyabouly, Vientiane and Khammouane.
2200 farmer families supported on agroecological practices
68 water supply systems built, benefiting more than 18 000 people
Where We Work
CCL runs rural development programs exclusively in Laos with a special focus on the northern upland areas. CCL benefits from a long and strong expertise on many sectors of rural development including natural resources management and agroecology.
