Pact’s approach to integrated programming in Cambodia touches many facets of the development spectrum, including good governance and social accountability, women’s economic empowerment and natural resource management.
Pact’s newest project in Cambodia, WE Act, launched in 2018, supports young women entrepreneurs to reach their full potential. With a focus on urban-based micro, small and medium businesses owned by women ages 18 to 30, the project is addressing key challenges to their businesses through capacity development, network expansion, information sharing, access to finance and markets and more. It’s also supporting others in the entrepreneur system to better serve the needs of young women entrepreneurs.
In partnership with local civil society organizations, Pact’s PROCEED project has helped Cambodians to improve governance at the local level, making processes and delivery of services more transparent, inclusive and accountable. Pact has supported citizens to take a bigger role in local decision making and helped government officials to invite and answer the public’s concerns.
Pact also implements the USAID Green Invest Asia project, which is working across Southeast Asia with a focus on Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. The project is catalyzing private sector finance to upscale and drive investments in agriculture, forestry, and other land use toward low emissions, yet profitable business models.
