The Laos-Australia Development Learning Facility (LADLF) supports the Australian Department for Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to deliver effective and efficient aid investments in Laos. In particular, LADLF focuses on generating, synthesising and disseminating performance information to support decision making around the Australian Government's Aid Investment Plan (AIP) in Lao PDR.


The Facility works at the leading edge of performance management and is representative of DFAT’s emerging approach to ensuring high-quality oversight of aid programming in key recipient countries. It works closely and in a collaborative manner with the Australian Embassy in Vientiane and its implementing partners, to fulfil DFAT’s mandate and objectives in Laos PDR.
