Improving the capacity of local media services to achieve better governance in Cambodia.

The Cambodia Communication Assistance Project (CCAP) works with four state broadcasters and one community radio station, on programming that promotes citizen voice in the public realm and the transparency and accountability of local authorities.

Of equal importance are programming initiatives designed to change public perceptions of gender based violence (GBV) and promote Ending Violence Against Women, by empowering women to speak out about their experiences, tracking  cases of GBV and encouraging local authorities to be accountable for their actions. 

CCAP implements a Communication for Development (C4D) approach, recognising the role media and communication plays in providing access to information that contributes to improved engagement, participation, transparency and accountability on issues that impact people’s daily lives.

Supporting better governance

Better governance is at the core of the Royal Government of Cambodia’s long-term strategy for social development. Its vision encompasses free and fair elections, the rule of law, access to justice, accountability of elected representatives and the inclusion of marginalised groups. 

Opening the public dialogue and improving information processes will help build better understanding of the aspects of governance between the Cambodian people and their government officials.
