Introducing​ MyVillage Cambodia, the 2nd Innovation Partner of Ponlok Chomnes program! 

This week, we are excited to highlight research to be undertaken by one of our Innovation Partners, My​ Village Organization (MVi). MVi will conduct research on the “Analysis of commune budget allocation for climate change and its impacts on marginalised communities: Case studies of commune administrations in Stung Treng Province.  

This research will assess current budget allocation practices, analyse the participation of marginalised groups in budgeting, examine the effects of climate change projects on these groups, and identify key constraints faced by commune administrations in allocating funds for climate change initiatives. 

Research has now commenced, stay tuned for more about this incredible new project!
