Dear Media Colleagues:
I am writing to inform you about upcoming event of Cooperation Committee for Cambodia (CCC).
Attached: media advisory both in English and Khmer. Roadmap of event location.
Monday, 02 April 2012
Official Launch of
“CSO Contributions to the Development of Cambodia 2011”
WHAT: Cooperation Committee for Cambodia (CCC) will launch a new publication on “CSO Contributions to the Development of Cambodia 2011” to increase awareness among the general public, private and civil society organizations on CSOs’ contributions to the development of Cambodia.
WHEN: 03 April 2012, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm
WHERE:ICF Center/KSSA (Korean Society for Service in Asia) located at #19-21, Street 330, Boeung Keng Kang III, Chamkamorn, Phnom Penh.
WHO: It is expected that up to 200 representatives of the government, development partners, CSOs and the general public, will be present.
WHY: Civil society organizations have played an integral role in the development of Cambodia for the past three decades and have made significant contributions toward improvements and social transformation for the lives of the country’s poor and marginalized. But, often, these contributions by CSOs are not systematically captured and shared. Furthermore, there are contrasting views in Cambodia on the role and contribution of civil society organizations to the development in Cambodia.
To claim and acknowledge the significant contributions of CSOs in Cambodia, the publication CSO Contributions to the Development of Cambodia 2011, developed through a survey with 309 CSOs in Cambodia, has been published by CCC in 2012. The publication presents the contributions of Cambodia’s CSOs to economic, social and democratic development, as well as important details on the current status of the civil society sector.
The findings of this report are testimony to the vast and important contributions that CSOs make to Cambodia, and should encourage discussion and reflection among government and donors on how to improve and ensure an enabling environment for CSOs to effectively continue and expand their vital work.
The representatives of the media who are interested to cover the event can join the event or find more information available at: http://www.ccc-cambodia.org/notifications/ccc-upcoming-events.html
