In 2021, PEA Laos developed the Monitoring Manual for Concession Investment in Lao PDR to provide uniform guidance for technical officials at central and provincial levels to conduct the effective monitoring of concession investments throughout the country. The efficient monitoring will ensure the compliance of concession investment against the obligations, terms and conditions stipulated in investment agreements and relevant regulations, especially social contribution, environmental management and mitigation measures. The Monitoring Manual, completed in January 2022 consists of all detail steps from pre-monitoring to post-monitoring mission, and budget allocation to support the regular monitoring missions. The Manual includes the monitoring forms to conduct onsite monitoring which link to the Investment Database. The monitoring forms cover all social and environmental obligations to ensure that investment contribute to local development including human resource development, job creations, labour safety, community engagement and environment impact mitigation.
