The project aims to strengthen the Cambodian Ministry of Women’s Affairs and the national gender machinery to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in Cambodia. The focus is on building their advocacy and coordination capacity for mainstreaming gender across government; developing, implementing and monitoring national gender policies (i.e. First National Gender Policy, Neary Rattanak V and Cambodia Gender Assessment); overseeing the localization of SDG 5; undertaking public behavioral change for gender equality; promoting women in leadership and decision-making positions; and facilitating the socio-economic inclusion of women and girls from disadvantaged groups.
The project supports the organizational development and reforms of the Ministry of Women’s Affairs to upgrade the role of MoWA as the leading coordinator and knowledge-based advocate for gender equality and women’s empowerment in Cambodia. Bilateral partnerships between MoWA and selected line ministries (ministries of Education, Youth and Sports; Information; Culture and Fine Arts; and Civil Service), government institutions (National Committee for Sub-National Democratic Development and Royal School of Administration), universities and media are envisaged to achieve the project’s objectives. The project also works to strengthen the policy monitoring and compliance functions of the Cambodian National Council for Women.
This platform is established to promote Cambodia Sustainable Development Goals and let more citizens be aware of the importance of sustainable development and support CSDGs in their real daily life. Activists can also upload their own projects or campaigns to promote and support CSDGs.
