Launching new UNDEF project in March 2018


Launching new UNDEF project in March 2018

With generous support by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF), the Advocacy and Policy Institute (API) has launched the new project "Enhancing Local Democratic Governance in Cambodia – Citizen Score Cards"(UDF-16- 714-CMB). It is implemented in a two-years period from 1 March 2018 to 29 Feb 2020 with the budget amount of UNDEF Grant in USD $165,000.

The project sets out to strengthen local governance and social accountability in two districts of Kampong Thom and Banteay Meanchay provinces. This will be achieved by means of: (a) increasing citizen’s capacity to monitor and influence local authorities’ service delivery, planning, and budgeting; (b) strengthening local authorities’ capacity to address demands of citizens on public service delivery; and (c) enhancing partnerships between government and civil society to address public needs and concerns. A citizen score card will be developed to establish an evidence base of citizens’ perceptions of social services and their needs in service delivery issues. Data collected from the score card will then be used to develop an action plan for service improvements.

API will steer the project and serve as the core capacity builder, subsequently supporting the two implementing partners, the Cambodian Organization for Women Support (COWS) in Kampong Thom; and the Village Support Group (VSG) in Banteay Meanchey. The Coalition for Partnership in Democratic Development (CPDD) will disseminate lessons learnt and experiences of the project at the national level.

This is the second time after “People Access to the Public Information in Cambodia” (2011-13) that UNDEF funds an API project. API thanks UNDEF for their commitment and support to civil society’s work on sub-national democratic development in Cambodia.
