UN expert calls for reform of poverty-driving policies in Lao PDR General—19 Jun 19

Bangkok--19 Jun--OHCHR-Bangkok

The Lao People's Democratic Republic should urgently adopt widespread reforms to alleviate poverty, protect the rights of people in poverty and ensure economic growth benefits the poorest, an independent UN expert said in a report released today.

The Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Philip Alston, urged the Government to eliminate corporate tax loopholes, reassess its dependence on dubious infrastructure projects and land concessions, and invest in education, health and social support.

"Lao PDR has done an impressive job reducing the number of people living below the international poverty line, despite a legacy of imperialism and widespread unexploded ordnance," Alston said. "But lifting people above a minimal income level must be the beginning, not the end, of the government's efforts, and persistent poverty remains a challenge for far too many."

The report, which will be presented to the UN Human Rights Council on 28 June, delivers findings from a visit to Lao PDR in March 2019 and builds on hispreliminary findings.

Almost a quarter of the Lao population lives in poverty, and an estimated 80 percent of the country lives on less than $2.50 per day. Eight-eight percent of children experience some form of deprivation, and women face widespread marginalisation
