In collaboration with ODC, CIPO has thus far focused upon drawing the demographic data on IPs from the existing population censuses of 2008 and 2013, and has structured the final report on IP demographic, socio-economic and cultural status. CIPO remains in consultation with the MoP however and needs to verify this data. The data collected from existing sources must also be supplemented by that gathered in the 2019 population census in order to get an accurate representation of the situation of IPs in Cambodia. Although CIPO cannot run the census, it takes a leading role in collaborating between the more than 20 ministries and NGOs that form the Working Group for the Implementation of the National Policy on Indigenous Peoples Development, and ensures that the criteria according to which the IP data is disaggregated shall be formed through collaboration with relevant stakeholders.
