Getting on the ground at RUCaS case study sites – Viet Nam, Lao PDR and Cambodia

Following on from our successful mission to Bangkok, Thailand in May, RUCaS team members visited Viet Nam, Lao PDR and Cambodia in June. Like Bangkok, the focus was getting a deeper understanding of context and stakeholders by visiting case study sites, to better understand the opportunities, the challenges and most importantly, the vision of the people on the ground.
