Cambodia office

We have had a presence in Phnom Penh since 2013. An office was formally registered in Cambodia in March 2014 through a Memorandum of Understanding between the Institute and the Royal Government of Cambodia. In total six staff members work at the office.

Our office in Phnom Penh enables close relations with partner institutions and facilitates situation analysis as well as programme design and flexible implementation.

In addition to keeping in close contact with partner institutions, the office also maintains contact with a wide range of national and international organizations and donors active in Cambodia in order to ensure coordination and synergies of its activities.
