Overview on Cambodia MDG8

Since 2004, the actual amounts disbursed have steadily risen and were $1,386 million in 2011.  Projections for the future suggest that aid disbursements should remain relatively robust, even though funding for many programmes and projects is yet to be confirmed.

The international assistance has risen and partnerships also have diversified with new partners coming in: most visibly, China has now become one of the most important development partners. Non-governmental organisation (NGO) partners have also contributed, about 12% mainly for work in the provinces.

Statement on Cambodia MDG8

The aid coordination appears doing well though continuous effort is needed to sustain the momentum.
