Promote Access to Information for a better participation of women

As Cambodia has been preparing for commune council elections in 2012 and the national elections the following year, a project to “Promote Access to Information for a better participation of women” under funding support from the OSI, will fill the gap of a pressing need of a promotion on access to information, particularly information related to elections, and a creation of culture of public information disclosure. This project provides training on right to access to information, ICT training, forums and seminar on related topic. The project also will look into the identification of the need of formulation of access to information policies. Hopefully, through this project target audiences, particularly female council/sangkat members will be well informed about the right access to information to enable them to exercise their rights and to have a better participation in social and political life.
