ESL provides advice to land and water managers within and outside of the mineral and agricultural sectors. Our objective is to ensure that natural resources are managed sustainably and with minimal impact upon the environment. Through our experience in water quality and soil management, biodiversity conservation and vegetation mapping, ESL has developed considerable expertise in conducting all aspects of environmental impact assessments and mitigation management plans in Lao PDR. For example, the skillful management of natural resources such as water, soils and vegetation are critical for the preservation of the wild aquatic fauna stocks located in project areas.
