History

In early 2002, Pact Cambodia, under the guidance of an Advocacy Advisory Committee (AAC) composed of representatives from nine Cambodian and international NGOs, initiated research into advocacy campaigns conducted in Cambodia from 1997 to 2001. This research highlighted the pressing need for Cambodian civil society actors to increase their advocacy skills and to create stronger relationships with Government. In order to respond to this need, the Advocacy and Policy Program (APP) was established in July 2003.

 

The APP was housed with Pact, an international NGO with headquarters in Washington D.C., USA. The goal of the AAC however had always been for the APP to ultimately localise and become a sustainable and independent Cambodian organisation. On May 24th, 2007, APP made an important step in this localisation process by adopting its new name, the Advocacy and Policy Institute (API) in order to reflect its fledgling independent identity. A further important step was taken on July 17th, 2007, when API officially registered with the Royal Government of Cambodia's (RGC) Ministry of Interior as a non-profit, non-governmental organisation.

 

Since July 2003, API has established itself as one of the leading advocacy capacity building institutions in Cambodia.  Please see more of its accomplishments.In early 2002, Pact Cambodia, under guidance from an Advocacy Advisory Committee (AAC) composed of representatives from nine Cambodian and international NGOs initiated research into advocacy campaigns conducted in Cambodia from 1997 to 2001.
