Mr Daniel Craig will then meet with the First Vice President of CMAA, His Excellency Ly Thuch, Ambassadors from the CFRIV donor countries, Australia, the Republic of Korea, and New Zealand, and representatives from the United Nations to discuss the need for sustained commitment and increased resource mobilization to meet the financial, logistical, and technical requirements essential to the pursuit of a mine-free Cambodia by 2025, in accordance with the National Mine Action Strategy 2018-2025 and Cambodia’s Sustainable Development Goal 18 (CSDG 18: End the negative impact of Mine/ERW and promote victim assistance). Following this brief discussion, the Battambang Safe Ground project will be launched.
The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has signed a grant cost-sharing agreement with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a record of discussions with the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) for the “Clearing for Results, Phase IV: Mine Action for Human Development” (CfRIV) project.
In Cambodia, the shrinking economy, hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, has affected all population groups, but particularly the most vulnerable.

While there has not yet been a substantial outbreak of COVID-19 in Cambodia, the impact of the global pandemic on Cambodia’s economy has been drastic.
The UN Development Programme (UNDP) launched today a report on the ongoing wage gap between women and men in Cambodia. The report covers evolving trends and factors that affect the wage gap.
A mission to connect social innovation with development expertise has provided Accelerator Labs Cambodia an opportunity to learn what works and what does not and, importantly, what is needed to solve more dynamic, intertwined and unpredictable development challenges.
What made this invitation special was that the school’s football ground had until recently been contaminated by landmines, a legacy of Cambodia’s many years of internal conflict. “I wish there are more safe playfields, so that the other kids can also play with safety.”
