The Law and Policy of Sustainable Development Research Center (LPSD) was established in 2007. With the purpose of promoting sustainable development in Vietnam, ensuring the equality, transparency and implementation of rights and duties between stakeholders in the social, economic and environmental fields, we commit not to serve any political purpose, to be a non-profit organization and to regard the community as our highest priority.   


LPSD is a core member of the Mekong Legal Network (MLN), an initiative coalition of public interest lawyers supported by Earth Rights International (ERI) that is ensuring sustainable development and the legal rights of people in the Mekong Region. LPSD is the coordinator of the MLN in 2017. Moreover, sharing the same interests in environmental fields including the energy sector, LPSD has played an active role in Save the Mekong Coalition (StM), Vietnam Environmental Network (VEN), Vietnam Sustainable Energy Alliance (VSEA), Vietnam Non Communicable Diseases Prevention Alliance (NCDs-VN) and other networks to collaborate effectively and thoroughly.
