75 NGO and sub-national government representatives from seven provinces and Phnom Penh gathered in Siem Reap on the 30th of November 2010 to discuss and review the implementation of the Paris Declaration Principles (PD), the Accra Agenda for Action (AAA) and reflect on the newly endorsed Istanbul CSO Principles for Development Effectiveness.NGOs and government recognised the progress made by all actors in Cambodia towards the implementation of PD and AAA. This includes clear policies in the formulation of the NSDP and a clear national development strategy. There has also been a move towards better alignment of NGOs plans to the NSDP and MDGs. NGOs have had increased opportunity to participate in the planning processes and the engagement of all actors on technical issues related to such sectors as education, health and natural resource management has improved. The capacity of local government officials and CBOs has improved.While much progress has been made, NGOs and government also recognized that many challenges remain. While capacity of all actors has increased, it is limited and requires further improvement. Cooperation is still limited on both sides, with CBOs and government communication not always at optimal levels. Financial resources for implementing local plans such as the CDPs or CIPs are still limited and hinder development at the local level. Finally neither government nor NGOs are well informed about the AAA and the PD or are not fully aware of their implications in improving aid and development effectiveness. There are insufficient linkages between national priorities and local grassroots initiatives to collectively improve national sustainable development efforts.

The forum participants recommend the following:

  • All actors in the development sector should work in partnership following the principles of PD and AAA in order to minimize the current gap between various actors in the development sector and to promote harmonisation between national development priorities and those at the grassroots level
  • Ongoing capacity building for NGOs, local government authorities and Cambodian citizens in order to be able to respond effectively to local development challenges
  • Planning for development should be an inclusive process, genuinely engaging all actors in planning, resource mobilisation and monitoring and evaluation of development progress with the ultimate goal being the improvement of quality of life of the poor
  • Build stronger relationships within institutions and between all development actors at all levels
  • Greater and long-term strategic and financial support for local NGOs and local government institutions
  • Include all development actors in existing mechanisms such as Technical Working Groups, which should also be replicated at the sub-national level

We, NGOs and government at the sub-national level, commit to creating an enabling working environment at the sub-national level for effective application of principles and commitment for promoting aid effectiveness and development effectiveness. We endorse the Istanbul Principles without any changes in the agreed upon framework for CSO Development Effectiveness and to reflect on these issues at the national, regional and international level through multi-stakeholder discussions.
