Technical Support to Lao PDR International Partner’s Meeting on Disaster Management Law | 25 July 2018 | Vientiane, Lao PDR

25 July , 2018

This meeting was organized by Laos’ Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare (MLSW) and chaired by Director General Prasong Vongkhamchanh, and was attended by key international development partners (e.g. USAID, World Bank, Caritas )  and some members of the Disaster Management (DM) Law Committee.

The meeting was  financially supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). In addition to this, IFRC provided technical support through presentation and facilitation.  The purpose of the meeting was to provide updates on the 1st draft of the Lao DM Law (drafted after the 1st Committee Meeting and 2nd Technical Meeting), and to consult international development partners on their inputs to the DM law. This is the first consultation with external partners apart from IFRC, UNDP and ADB.

The key achievement of our technical support was to sensitize the international development partners on key considerations for effective disaster laws and available IFRC disaster law tools. We also provided them with copies of the Checklist on Law and DRR which they used during the break-out sessions.
