The Asia Foundation’s Ponlok Chomnes Program in collaboration with Khmer Association for Development of Countryside (KAFDOC), Komar Rikreay Association (KMR), and My Village Organization (MVi), co-hosted the Provincial Policy Forum on “Local Knowledge Matters: Impact of COVID-19 on Vulnerable Groups”on August 18, 2022, in Battambang province and via Zoom. The forum convened over 50 participants representing sub-national governments, local NGOs, and knowledge producers to showcase their research, discuss, exchange knowledge, and network with participants. The discussion focused on four main topics, including the use of data to inform decisions at the local level, the impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable groups such as school dropouts in Kratie province, vulnerable children in Battambang province, and indigenous people in Stung Treng province.
This Provincial Policy Forum was supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Australian Embassy, Cambodia) through The Asia Foundation’s Ponlok Chomnes: Data and Dialogue for Development in Cambodia program.
