Public-Private-Partnership for sustainable rural development: the experience of the Organic Asparagus Producers Group in Attapeu, Laos
In 2010, in the small village of Darkhied, Laos, a small family community of 21 families, mainly Alak people from the mountain tribes, participated in a rural development initiative to form the Organic Asparagus Producers Group sponsored by DAFO, IFAD, GTZ and SWIFT.
Two years later, the small village of Darkhied has paved roads, a school and 222 households. They still continue to learn to improve the standards of their organic products and their future plans to build a packing factory to generate more employment, is a feasible one.
