Sustainable Rural Development & Poverty Alleviation in the Lao PDR

About CCL

Commité 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 ethnic minorities groups and women in remote areas.
