Leave no one behind: community-led mechanisms in Cambodia
Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Asia, with the vast majority of the population living precariously close to the poverty line. Emerging from the Pol Pot regime, the country has also experienced rapid unplanned and unregulated urbanisation. This Working Paper, an annex to Leave no one behind: what is the role of community-led urban development?, examines the Cambodian approach to ensuring equity through the formation of urban poor-led organisations. In particular, it looks at the Community Savings Network Cambodia, which not only provides financial mechanisms to support low-income people, but also conducts enumeration and mapping to ensure the most marginalised people are included in urban development of Cambodian cities.
