Ministry officials praise CSO campaign success

A governance initiative by VSO Cambodia has increased the capacity of civil society organisations (CSO) and has facilitated communication between communities and local authorities, according to Ngan Chamroeun, the under secretary of state for the Ministry of Interior.

“Through this project, people have the chance to ask for more services from local authorities and that will make local administrations become more transparent too,” Chamroeun said, speaking at the “Strengthening CSO Networks Workshop for Inclusive Development” on Friday in Phnom Penh.

The CSO campaign started in April 2016 and ended this month. It operated in Phnom Penh and eight provinces — Prey Veng, Svay Rieng, Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Kratie, Stung Treng, Mondulkiri and Ratanakiri.
