Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden


The aim of the Pha Tad Ke project is to create a regional research centre with the first living collection of plants in Laos, dedicated to research, both in situ and ex situ, for both educational and leisure purposes.

As such, Pha Tad Ke will be the very first centre in the country, which can ensure the knowledge and the preservation of the exceptional biodiversity of Laos. The centre, supported by the collaboration and exchange of information with prestigious botanical institutions of South East Asia, the United States and Europe will have as its mission the development of educational programs, to publish editorial work, and to conduct research into environmental conservation, re-introduction of plants, horticulture, and ethno-botany in order to promote biodiversity.
