The European Union has completed projects in eight provinces that began in 2016 and were aimed at strengthening community participation in decisions made by local authorities.

An EU delegation last week visited one of the projects in Siem Reap province, where civil society encouraged people to take part in finding ways to develop their communities.

The EU projects, named “Strengthening Civil Society Organisation Networks for Inclusive Development”, were jointly implemented by NGOs Voluntary Service Overseas, Cooperation Committee for Cambodia, NGO Forum and Gender and Development for Cambodia in collaboration with provincial civil society networks.

The projects, which ended in September, were set up with EU funding of about $1 million in Siem Reap, Kampong Thom, Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, Stung Treng, Ratanakiri, Mondulkiri and Kratie provinces.
