Under the project "Strengthening Social Inclusion in Public Policies through South-South cooperation in ASEAN", one of three pilots has been established in Cambodia under the title "Promoting Social Inclusion in Cambodia". The Disability Action Council (DAC) of Cambodia is the implementing partner. The results of the work done and draft recommendations will be presented at a two-day workshop for wider consultation and discussion in Phnom Penh, Cambiodia, on 12-13 January 2017.

This project focuses on strengthening national capacities to assess and revise social policies to increase inclusiveness and ensure the equal enjoyment of human rights by all, including the disadvantaged and vulnerable segments of population.

The rationale of the project is to bring closer social science research and policy making, to stimulate public‐driven policy innovations, and to support evidence‐based and inclusive policy design in selected countries in South-east Asia. The project is developed for the direct benefit of policy communities working on inclusive policy analysis and agenda setting, including government, social science communities (e.g. academics) and advocacy and rights-holder groups.

The Cambodian pilot focuses on policies relevant for disability, in particular the National Disability Strategic Plan.
