Cambodia embarks on new phase of flagship education program

Phnom Penh – Cambodia’s Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports launched on Wednesday the new and final phase of a multi-year joint capacity development partnership, which aims to strengthen the country’s education sector over four years.

Known as the Capacity Development Partnership Fund (CDPF), the program, started in 2011 with funding from development partners, has entered its third and final phase in 2018 for a total amount of 27 million U.S. dollars over the period of 2018-2021, said a joint statement.

“The activities we conduct under CDPF are focused on improving the ministry’s capacity to provide inclusive and equitable access to education for all children, and to ensure effective leadership and management of education staff at all levels,” Cambodian Minister of Education, Youth and Sports Hang Chuon Naron said in the statement.
