Knowledge Management, Advice, Referrals and Linkages
CCC has long been curator of a trove of up-to-date information on an array of subjects relating to the NGO sector in Cambodia, and fields inquiries from NGOs, government, donors and the private sector, on topics ranging from government regulations affecting NGOs, to the number of NGOs working in specific sectors, to NGO contact details, to potential partners in regional or sectarian networks, to name but a few.
The Governance Hub Program gives prominence to this important function of CCC, and seeks to pioneer an innovation in the ways that knowledge is generated and shared between NGOs. Focusing on the management of knowledge around good governance and other matters relating to NGOs, this component of the GHP aims to encourage monitoring and evaluation of the performance of the NGO sector; conducts surveys and research; provides advice and referrals; and facilitates cooperation among the varied actors in the NGO sector to advocate cohesively on cross-cutting issues affecting the sector and its ability to effectively contribute to the development of Cambodia.

Protecting CSO Sector Democratic Space
The Cambodian government has expressed its intention to enact a Law on Associations and NGOs since 2008. Since then CCC, in collaboration with other umbrella organizations and NGO networks in-country and globally have been working closely together to monitor the processes of drafting the law while at the same time facilitating dialogues and timely information sharing with the NGO community, the donor community and the government on this important issue.
CSOs speak out against shrinking democratic space in Cambodia. Read the joint statement calling for an end to the use of armed force and violence against Cambodia's citizens.
Advocating for Better Awareness and Practice on Aid Effectiveness and Development Effectiveness
While the issue of aid effectiveness had been discussed extensively between the Royal Government of Cambodia and the donor community, prior to 2008 few NGOs had been engaged in these national discussions. Many NGOs based in the provinces were not even aware that these discussions were taking place.
Since 2008, CCC has engaged in a variety of activities to raise CSO awareness of and engagement in aid/development effectiveness in Cambodia.
Applying Information and Communications Technology to Enable Betterment of CSO Sector
CCC's IT unit not only manages the day-to-day maintenance and appropriate upgrades to our internal ICT systems to keep them secure and functioning well, but also provides a variety of services for Cambodia's CSO sector. These range from learning forums for our members and external audiences that will help them to keep up with changes and trends in computing and internet technology, to updating our website to keep you well-informed about emerging issues around CSO governance, development effectiveness, and enabling environment.
