Project Administration

Funded by the New Zealand's International Aid & Development Agency, the Nam Ha Ecotourism Project’s executing agency is the UNESCO Office of the Regional Advisor for Culture in Asia and the Pacific. The project’s national implementing agency is the Lao National Tourism Administration, which implements the project through the Luang Namtha PTO under the supervision of a national supervisory committee. At the field level, a provincial steering committee has been formed to provide guidance and coordination for the project’s day-to-day implementation in Luang Namtha.
