Smith, H., Leggate, W., Faircloth, A. and et al., (2023) Advancing enhanced wood manufacturing industries in Laos and Australia. Technical Report. ACIAR.



In 2005, ACIAR began to invest in the plantation and wood products sector in Lao PDR. This project, FST/2016/151 ‘Advancing enhanced wood manufacturing industries in Laos and Australia’ (VALTIP3) was the third in a series commencing in 2007 and built on the results, findings and lessons from its precursors and other ACIAR forest-related projects in Lao PDR.
The VALTIP3 project undertook a range of research activities spanning entire plantation-wood value chains. These activities comprised mapping plantations and understanding why and by whom they were planted, exploring the roles of various specific actor groups such as traders and women; examining potential options for the development of new and innovative wood products, installing and demonstrating new processing technologies; developing capacity in operationalising these technologies; and assessing the policy, regulatory and strategic setting across all areas bearing on the value chains.
