In Cambodia, we equip young people for success in the future economy, engage policy actors toward more inclusive policy dialogues, and support increased attention to environment and climate change issues at the local level. We focus on economic inclusion, environmental resilience, integrated regional development, and improved public service delivery.

Engaging Cambodia’s knowledge sector in policymaking

Ponlok Chomnes Data and Dialogue for Development in Cambodia focuses on strengthening the Cambodian knowledge sector’s organizational and technical capacity to create an enabling environment for evidence-based and informed inclusive dialogue processes in Cambodia. The program is supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and focuses on policy research and seeks to engage diverse policy actors and issues, including climate change and gender equality, disability, and social inclusion.

Communities tackling plastic waste

The Asia Foundation is working to address the challenges of sustainable waste management with two major programs:

Strengthening PET Recycling in Cambodia is a collaboration with the Coca-Cola Foundation which aims to engage stakeholders throughout the recycling supply chain and collect 100,000 kilograms of PET bottles in Phnom Penh and Battambang.

3RProMar (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to Protect the Marine Environment and Coral Reefs) is an ASEAN regional GIZ-supported pilot program in Kratie addressing the city management’s challenges to develop a sustainable development path for improved solid waste management services.

Engaging local budgets with community leaders and citizens

The Asia Foundation is implementing a three-year project supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of New Zealand in 24 communes across four Cambodian provinces to incentivize local councils to become more citizen-friendly and provide citizens with the opportunity to participate in the planning and budgeting process. Promoting the Transparent and Accountable Management of Local Funds in Cambodia has been supporting capacity building for over 200 commune councilors and district councilors through policy dialogues at both national and subnational levels and has engaged over 40,000 citizens.
