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.

In the last five years Cambodia has made significant progress in institutionalising and implementing the global framework on aid effectiveness nevertheless, capacity and resource constraints are still among the major bottlenecks to reaching the CMDGs by 2015. Continued aid dependence highlights the important role of external resources in supporting the national development programme as well as the need to ensure that these resources are managed effectively. The focus of development assistance is on maintaining the support to government reforms to improve service delivery, strengthen national institutions and to improve governance and accountability.
CRDB/CDC has established itself as a provider of expertise and as a facilitating agency in the field of aid management. Therefore, it needs to consolidate and expand its capacity to build effective partnerships and to establish good working practices with national and international stakeholders in order to deliver development results in accordance with the CMDgs and national development policies. This will ensure that CrDB/CDC can function independently of external support by 2015 and provide effective and relevant contextualised support in all technical, partnership and systems-related areas of aid management across all sectors.
