Launched in 1992, the Singapore Cooperation Programme (SCP) has been a platform through which Singapore has shared our development experience with more than 126,000 government officials from over 170 countries, territories and international/regional organisations.
Of this number, more than 14,600 Cambodian officials have attended SCP programmes in diverse fields including English language training, public administration and environment management.
As a country with no natural resources, we strongly believe that human resource development is essential for nation-building and sustainable development.
The SCP is also evidence of our commitment to give back to the international community, having received assistance from others during our early years of independence.
This year, we have a new Climate Action Package of courses in our training calendar aimed at supporting the capacity building of developing countries in long-term climate mitigation and risk adaptation strategies.
We also continue to offer a wide-ranging plethora of courses – covering topics such as connectivity, international law and smart city development.
In support of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SCP aims to help fellow developing countries to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Under Singapore’s contribution to the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI), our upgraded Cambodia-Singapore Cooperation Centre (CSCC) aims to be an integrated platform to coordinate and deliver development assistance in a holistic manner, beyond the classroom.
The CSCC will facilitate a wider range of projects in areas including urban planning, smart nation and humanitarian assistance.
Enterprise Singapore, Temasek Foundation International and other Singapore organisations are welcome to utilise the CSCC as a hub for their development assistance efforts in Cambodia.
