DPs' Assistance Policies & Programs
Since 1986, Cambodia has been implementing its national development plans (i.e. NSDP) to promote economic growth and to alleviate poverty. In this sense, RGC needs budget for implementing the plans. Due to the limited national budget, Cambodia has largely depended on the external resources such as grant, technical cooperation, and concessional loan for capital investment for development of Cambodia. Table 1 below clearly indicates the important roles of Official Development Assistance (ODA) compared with national budget in attainment of NSDP.

In order to ensure the alignment of their resources with the demand-driven programs and projects of Cambodia, some development partners and agencies have formulated their country assistance strategies and programs specifically for Cambodia through discussion between RGC and DPs in the policy dialogue while other DPs still use their foreign policies or general assistance policies of their countries not only for Cambodia but also for other developing countries. The names of the strategies and/or policies of DPs may be different from one DP to another. Some DPs jointly formulate country programs for Cambodia such as UNDAF for UN, and European Development Cooperation Strategy for 2014-2018 for EU to faciliate the coordination and harmonization of development cooperation among their members.

In overall, development partners and agencies play vital roles in supporting Cambodia to achieve the development priorities set in the NSDP through their firm alignment of their programs and projects with the Public Investment Programs (PIP), a 3-year rolling plan. Currently, there are 49 development partners and agencies – multilateral and bilateral- providing technical and financial assistance to implement their programs and projects in Cambodia (source: Cambodian ODA database).
