To continue assessing the capabilities of NIPN stakeholders at the province level, especially in the northern region of Phongsaly and Oudomxay, the Data and Policy Analysis Unit, led by Mr. Souphit Darachanthra, a senior advisor at DRI, and Dr. Vilaiyvone Phomemachan, deputy director from SPRI, along with a team of consultants and the core team from both DAU and PAU, traveled to Phongsaly and Oudomxay from May 14th to May 20th, 2023.

The main objective was to work with four departments from the two provinces – the Department of Planning and Investment, Department of Agriculture and Forestry, Department of Education and Sports, and Department of Health – to evaluate their capacities in different areas. The main focus was on data analysis, quantitative and qualitative analysis, in order to prepare them for the implementation of NIPN phase 2 activities at the provincial level. Then, the capacity building plan will be developed based on the finding from this assessment
