About hbs Cambodia

The Cambodia Program of the Heinrich Böll Foundation aims at empowering local civil society actors to contribute effectively to debates on policy priorities in the governance of natural resources. Strategic partnerships are sought to initiate research and capacity building projects to inform and foster stakeholder dialogue at the local, national and regional levels. 

Particular attention is given to the situation of Cambodia’s indigenous communities whose social and cultural survival depends on their access to traditional lands and natural resources. The Heinrich Böll Foundation works in partnership with local non-governmental and academic organizations, indigenous associations and regional networks to empower female and male indigenous leaders and their communities to defend their livelihood rights and pursue self-determined development.
