This is the End of Project Report for the slope stabilisation trials carried out on roads 13N and 7 in the hilly areas of northern Lao PDR. It lists the outcomes of the research, and summarises the knowledge that was generated to enhance the management of roadside slopes. The project has clearly made a significant contribution to the understanding of slope instability in the Lao PDR, and the remedial options that may be used to resolve it. It is now possible to provide detailed guidance on the stabilisation and protection of slopes in the hilly parts of Laos, and the project has done this through its most comprehensive outputs: a slope manual and a site handbook. However, there are still gaps in this knowledge, and the final part of the report gives consideration to further research that would generate the data necessary to fill these gaps. Some of these are strategic, in that they would be intended to minimise the occurrence of instability on roadside slopes, and others are technical, intended to address a range of specific gaps in knowledge.
