Research and Policy
The Cooperation Committee for Cambodia (CCC) has set out its objectives in relation to several research themes which engage and reflecting to the Cambodian civil society and sustainable development at large. CCC’s four major components, i.e., Governance and Professional Practice (GPP), Business and Capacity Development (BCD), Coalition Building, Advocacy and Networking (CAN) and Communication and Member Development (CMD), have partly involved in various researches. Most of researches have addressed on civil society organizations (CSOs) in aiming at reflecting the CSOs enabling environment, CSOs effectiveness, CSOs Funding, CSOs Trust Funds and CSOs contribution for sustainable development in Cambodia. Besides, CCC has 170 registered Members with multidisciplinary and diverse missions/goals throughout the nationwide that work with grassroots communities and government lined institutions at both national and subnational levels. This is also an opportunity of setting up information hub through collecting relevant information, data and publications into a package of research stock taking and/or knowledge management in which results from CSOs outputs and impacts. From 2017 to next few years onward, CCC will come up with several research themes as listed in its research agenda in which mainly focus on, for instance, Digital insights process, advance standard of good practices for NGOs operating in Cambodia, assessment on institutional and program development of NGOs and CBOs (Community-based organizations) and enabling environment for CSOs in Cambodia at both national and subnational levels. CCC’s research outputs will play critically significant roles as evidence-based policy briefs in meaning to support advocacy initiatives for CSOs contribution efforts to Cambodian society.
