This document summarizes the main results of the Lao Uplands Initiative, a knowledge capitalization process that took place over a six-month period under the umbrella of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of the Lao PDR. As the Lao Uplands are under high pressure for change, competing visions for development of the Lao Uplands prevail.

The overarching question the Lao Uplands Initiative addressed was therefore: are the Lao Uplands on the right path towards a sustainable development?

A consortium of projects and institutions engaged in the Lao Uplands Initiative to (i) reflect on recent transformations and their impacts on upland populations, (ii) take stock of main lessons from past and on-going interventions, (iii) review policy options for a green growth, and (iv) develop a road map towards Sustainable Development Goals. This process and its outputs are summarized in this document.
