National Development Plans
The National Strategic Development Plan (NSDP) is the overarching policy instrument of the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC). First developed in 2006-2010, it has brought together all key government policies, including economic development, education, health, agriculture, land planning, and environment policies and many others. It is the RGC’s blueprint for poverty reduction in Cambodia for the future.
The CSOs in Cambodia see that country ownership of such a major policy framework goes beyond government ownership. The common ground of these organizations is the shared objective of advancing the position of the poor and vulnerable groups in Cambodian society. Through combined knowledge of what is occurring at the grassroots level, CSO/NGOs are well placed to assist the RGC and development partners in theirs policy making and implementation by sharing and providing valuable feedback and suggestions regarding the country’s development policy and implementation.
