Lao People's Democratic Republic - Community Nutrition Project : ethnic group development framework (英语)

The objective of the Community Nutrition Project (CNP) for Lao People's Democratic Republic is to improve coverage of essential maternal and child health services and improve mother and child caring practices among pregnant and lactating women and children less than two years old in the seven southern and central provinces. The project is anticipated to have a positive impact on ethnic groups living in the target districts. In most cases, the upland ethnic groups in the project areas are culturally, socially and economically distinct from the lowland groups, and they are vulnerable to becoming disadvantaged in the development process. As a number of implementation details are expected to be finalized during the first phase of project implementation, the government is required to prepare this Ethnic Group Development Framework (EGDF) rather than a more detailed ethnic group development plan. The purpose of this EGDF is to document the procedures through which the CNP aims to ensure that vulnerable ethnic groups do not suffer adverse impacts of the project and that they receive benefits in a manner that is culturally appropriate to their particular circumstances as required by the Bank's safeguards policy on indigenous peoples (OP 4.10).
