Our in-depth understanding of the local, national and global context allows us to work effectively to deliver real and sustainable change to the IP society. We draw on a diverse range of methodologies we can deploy flexibly to achieve impact. These include: advocating for IPs census and developing IPs center, facilitating the community formation; creating networks and collaboration between stakeholder groups; enabling and developing IPs key leaders; building and strengthening the IPs capacity; and coordinating IPs access to legal assistance. This is all offered within a framework that allows CIPO to develop tailored interventions to meet the needs of the IP communities.
CIPO wants to see Indigenous Peoples (IP) with the capacity to proactively and responsively promote Indigenous Peoples Community (IPC) to be a permanent entity living with dignity within the multicultural society of Cambodia.
CIPO exists to improve well-being, rights and sustainable development of the IP communities, through strengthening the IPs’ sense of ownership on land and natural resources management, economic development and culture/tradition conservation.
