Naga House is located off Sisangvone Road, right near the Japanese Embassy near Sisangvone temple. If you are coming up Sisangvone from Nongbone, you will pass the Japanese Embassy on your right. Immediately after the embassy, turn right at the sign for Vayakhone School. Go straight, for about 100m and Naga house is a two story house on your left. There are two large concrete nagas outside the house, and our orange circle on white logo.

Naga House is a regional hub on research-for-development on water.

Naga House is located in the old IRD office, about 10 minutes from downtown Vientiane, Lao PDR. Naga House is run and managed by the WLE Greater Mekong.

Naga House was established to fill a need in the Mekong region for an impartial space for water resources management and governance where scholars, thinkers, development professionals, civil society and/or NGO workers could work in convivial surroundings. Naga House also serves as a repository of freely available information on programmatic activities, the development of water resources, and other relevant media.

If you would like to use this space, please contact us at
