Remarks by Mr. Javier Castano, Acting Deputy Mission Director, USAID/Cambodia, Joint Ceremony with SIDA  to Support the Arbitration Council Foundation
February 27, 2020

USAID has supported labor rights in Cambodia for more than two decades. We are proud of that support. Our Labor Rights in Cambodia Project is the newest phase in our support for workers. It is a five-year project with an ambitious set of objectives, including assisting independent trade unions in their efforts to represent and provide benefits to their member workers in the garment, construction, food and services, hotel and hospitality industries, as well as workers in the informal economy, from tuk tuk drivers to entertainment workers.

On behalf of USAID, the EU, UNICEF, and Save the Children Hong Kong I would like to recognize the importance of these guidelines in strengthening Cambodia’s child protection system to better support vulnerable children and families.

USAID/Cambodia announced a major initiative to strengthen social accountability for public service delivery in urban areas of several Cambodian provinces.  This effort, made up of several coordinated activities, will help citizens and authorities improve the availability and quality of services such as primary education, healthcare, waste collection,  and administrative services.

USAID Cambodia supports health, education, and child protection programs to enable Cambodian children to access quality education, to grow up in safe, nurturing family environments free from violence, and to be healthy. Our work is guided by the U.S. government strategy of Advancing Protection and Care for Children in Adversity, which emphasizes the importance of strengthening the capacities of children, adolescents, and the families that care for them. This is one of the best investments a country can make to eliminate extreme poverty, boost economic growth, and promote a peaceful society.

Remarks by Mr. Carlos Lamadrid, Acting Deputy Mission Director, USAID/Cambodia, Pursat Fishway Opening Event
October 9, 2019

Cambodia faces great challenges in preserving its rich fish populations. Water availability and timing are becoming increasingly uncertain here and throughout the Mekong Basin as hydroelectric development expands. Flooded forests are being removed. More people are fishing, both legally and illegally. And a changing climate adds uncertainty to all of these factors.

But I have also learned that Cambodians – both in government and in communities across the nation – are responding to these threats through community-based fishery management, improved law enforcement, and efforts to blend rice culture with aquaculture.
