This research attempts to assess the key impact: learning, sharing, building alliance, using mechanisms on a rights-based approach through baseline studies, especially IP women, especially to enable indigenous peoples, particularly women from Cambodia assert their rights in the sustainable development process with their effective participation in related to the national and international mechanism.
As it has been identified, HA is still well-known not only by IP communities based in Rattanakiri but also by NGOs and donors. Most of its program inputs continue to be practically relevant to the current contextual changes in IP. In the Women Empowerment Program, some signs of progress were found in women’s capacity to speak up and express better confidence in sharing their views on the changes in women’s roles and responsibilities under the current development trends. Furthermore, with training on women’s rights and empowerment, more informal discussions and chats have now been observed amongst women in their own villages, where they can share experiences and feelings about their families as well as about their personal issues.
