Cambodia has long been engaged in strengthening effective development cooperation through development cooperation strategies (2014-2018 and 2019-2023) and recently formulated, endorsed Development Cooperation and Partnerships Strategy (DCPS) 2024-2028. Being committed to monitoring the impact of country’s development cooperation, Cambodia has partaken in all three past Global Partnership Monitoring Rounds (2014, 2016 and 2018). For the Global Partnership Monitoring Round 2023-2026, Cambodia is one of the 56 countries that participate, launching the monitoring exercise through the Multi-stakeholder Kick-off Meeting. In preparation for data collection phase, the meeting aimed at 1) launching the monitoring exercise, 2) leading the process and 3) identifying roles/responsibilities. 

Drawing upon the end results of monitoring exercise, efforts to strengthen development cooperation are outlined as follows:

1. A Commitment to Development Effectiveness Principles: Participants reaffirmed their commitment to effective development cooperation, recognizing the importance in achieving the global agenda: Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This commitment enhances mutual accountability and actions for results.

2. Towards Enhanced Stakeholder Engagement: The meeting highlighted the importance of diverse development actors’ different but complementary roles including the Royal Government, parliament, development partners and civil society. Commitments were made to foster collaboration and participation to ensure accurate, comprehensive data collection.

3. Follow-up Actions: The meeting emphasized the importance of follow-up actions beyond the Multi-Stakeholder Kick-off Meeting in order to sustain momentum, collect data, disseminate results, reflect and transition to action as well as implement recommendations emerging from the monitoring exercise.

The Multi-stakeholder Kick-off Meeting culminated in a collective commitment by all development actors to undertake a robust monitoring exercise, reinforcing Cambodia’s commitment to effective development cooperation and sustainable development.
