Democratic Governance

  • Partnership for Gender Equity Phase III

    The project is built on the achievements made in the previous phases to ensure that the gender-sensitive policies and plans for Millennium Development Goal acceleration are actually implemented and make an impact on the status, rights and choices of the Cambodian women.

  • Strengthening Democracy Programme

    The project works towards promoting increased participation in democratic decision making as well as supporting national and sub-national institutions to be more accountable and responsive to the needs and rights of all people in Cambodia.

  • Association of Councils Enhanced Services

    “ACES - Association of Councils Enhanced Services Project” is designed to turn the local council association (LCA) – the offspring of National League of Communes/Sangkats – into an effective network and representative in advocating for the common interests of the local councils and citizens. The project endeavors for the League to make a qualitative leap forward, building on the achievements of an EU-UNDP supported programme, the Democratic and Decentralised Local Governance in 2006-2011.

  • Partnerships for Development Results

    Partnerships for Development results works to promote the Royal Government of Cambodia’s (RGC) aid management capacities and partnership practices in order to achieve improved development results and the Cambodian Millennium Development Goals (CMDGs). The programme supports the government in revising its aid management policy, in ensuring sector results by aligning national and external resources with government sector/budget strategies and in using national systems for programming, planning, monitoring and evaluation, coordination and resource mobilization in a number of key sectors.

  • Disability Rights Initiative Cambodia

    The long term goal of the Disability Rights Initiative-Cambodia (DRIC) Programme is the “improved quality of life for persons with disabilities” in Cambodia. Achievement of the end-of-programme outcome, “persons with disabilities have increased opportunities for participation in social, economic, cultural and political life through effective implementation of the National Disability Strategic Plan (NDSP)”, will contribute to improve quality of life for persons with disabilities.

Our work - Democratic Governance

UNDP’s work in this area is aimed enabling Cambodians to voice their concerns and local decision-makers to better prioritize and respond to the needs of the people in their respective constituencies. It supports the government to improve democratic governance in the areas of local accountability, localizing climate change responses, women’s empowerment, youth civic participation and inclusion of marginalized groups.
