Lao PDR's NDC sets a target of increasing and maintaining forest cover to 70 percent of the total land area by 2020 and increasing the share of small-scale renewable energy to 30 percent of the total energy consumption by 2030. Lao's adaptation efforts focus on five priority sectors: agriculture, forest and land use change, water resources, transport and urban development, and public health. The national context includes its eighth Five Year National Socio-economic Plan (2016-2020) with a vision to 2030; the Climate Change and Disaster Law, which was in development at the time of the INDC's submission; and the National Strategy on Climate Change (NSCC), which was approved in early 2010.
