ABSTRACT

Lao Power Sector Vulnerability Assessment and Resilience Action Plan   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) recognizes that access to reliable, secure, and affordable electricity is essential to powering economic growth and development and becoming a major regional power provider. The Lao power sector is at risk from an array of natural, technological, and human-caused hazards that may interrupt the provision of electricity or lead to a chronic undersupply of power. A resilient Lao power system could thrive under changing conditions and withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from the impacts of hazards. To address risks, policymakers, planners, and system operators of the Lao PDR conducted a power-sector vulnerability assessment (VA) and resilience planning process to safeguard their systems. The Lao PDR now has the opportunity to develop comprehensive policies and implement actions that increase its power-sector resilience incrementally over time. [...] This report details the process used to conduct the VA and resilience action plan and the outcomes of those processes."
