According to ADB documents, the proposed Second Strengthening Higher Education Project (the project) will strengthen the linkage between higher education (HE) services and socioeconomic needs by improving HE quality, enhancing access to modern HE programs, and strengthening governance and management of HE institutions. The project builds on the achievements and lessons learned from Strengthening Higher Education Project (SHEP), which introduced innovative approaches to improve the HE subsector in Lao PDR.
The impact will be stronger links between higher education services and socioeconomic needs. The outcome will be improved quality of higher education services. The project will provide support to four public HEIs (Champasack University, NUOL, Savannakhet University, and Souphanouvong University), and improve the regulatory framework for HEIs.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
