About us

The Cleaner Production Center Lao PDR is an initiative of United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) under its global Cleaner Production promotion movement. The project is funded by the Swiss Government through the State Secretariat for Economic Affair (SECO) and hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce.

The aim of the center is to raise the awareness of Lao industries and actively promote cleaner production issues through various mechanisms with inclusion of conduction of cleaner production demonstration project in representative industries, documenting the benefits and experiences of the project and publicizing the results for creating multiplier effect.

Cleaner production activities have been started in Lao PDR in 2004 with the full support of the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (former Industry and Handicrafts Ministry), and with the support from DANIDA in 2001 and 2002 by providing some basic training for a small team of its personnel in cleaner production concepts.
