On behalf of USAID Cambodia, I want to thank everyone for their participation over the past two years and also today to develop the Environment and Natural Resources Code. I want to congratulate the Royal Government of Cambodia, especially the Ministry of Environment and the National Council for Sustainable Development, and other ministries for their commitment and effort to develop the Code. This has been a long process that has incorporated the voices of many representatives of government, NGOs, and civil society to ensure that Cambodia’s development considers the environment and natural resources management.

On behalf of USAID, I am delighted to welcome you to this capacity assessment validation workshop on Cambodia’s “One Health” workforce training needs. This is the second gathering of key partners and stakeholders of the interdisciplinary One Health approach in Cambodia, with the financial support from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). This project provides a platform for government agencies, academic institutions, and other stakeholders to meet and work towards a common goal. That goal is to build a skillful health workforce in Cambodia that can effectively respond to the threats of infectious disease that may emerge among humans, domesticated animals, and wildlife.

Under USAID’s Cambodia Countering Trafficking in Persons Program, Winrock International partnered with BBC Media Action to develop a program and to provide Training-of-Trainers workshops on soft skills development. The program improves the skills of workers with limited education so they can more successfully access the job market, better identify employment options, improve their communication skills, and build their confidence. This is an important part of our larger effort at countering human trafficking.

As Cambodia moves towards virtual elimination of HIV, it becomes ever more important to know what elements of the national program are producing the desired results and which elements require adjustment. Evaluating innovative approaches to programming and finding efficiencies take on heightened importance. This is where research and evaluation play critical roles. The USAID HIV Innovate and Evaluate Project did just that by providing relevant information to Cambodia's decision-makers at the policy, implementation, and community levels.

It is more critical than ever to bring the best minds together to tackle the world’s most pressing problems. Challenges like the increasing demand for food production, the long term risks of environmental degradation, and rapidly shifting social dynamics continue to pose complex challenges to feeding the world’s population.
