Swedish development cooperation with Laos dates back to the end of the 1970s. Sida has decided to conduct an evaluation study of its development cooperation with Laos with the aim to provide insights into the results and lessons learned from decades of development cooperation. The study also aims to contribute to a broader understanding of where and why Swedish development cooperation has been successful and what the key constraining factors have been. This working paper was conducted as part of phase 1 of the study that focused on documentation and included a description of interventions, sectors, thematic areas, and modes of cooperation during the various periods of development cooperation.
