According to the bank document, the project is to improve sustainable forest management and enhance livelihoods and tourism opportunities in selected landscapes in northern, central and southern Lao PDR.
The Project would have four components that, taken together, help convene and “crowd in” coordinated actions and investments in priority spatially explicit landscapes to achieve larger impact at scale than would be possible with small fragmented projects. Components would be financed by IDA and GEF and would include:
1: Investing in Natural Wealth and Resilience in the Forest Landscape
2: Livelihoods Opportunities from the Forest Landscape
3: Institutions, Incentives, and Information to Build Natural Wealth and Resilience
4: Project Coordination, Management and Monitoring.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing email@example.com. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: http://ewebapps.worldbank.org/apps/ip/Pages/Home.aspx.
