Title of the project: Improve the capacity of the Cambodian SNAs in participatory, integrated and sustainable urban
planning and land management in order to upgrade the urban poor settlements and ensure access to basic
services for vulnerable communities
The Phnom Penh City Hall (PPCH), the National Association of Capital and Provincial Councils (NACPC), the National
League of Local Councils (NLC), the City of Paris (France) and the International Association of Francophone Mayors
(AIMF) have decided to combine their respective competencies and experiences to implement a project to improve
the capacity of the Cambodian Sub-national Administrations (SNAs) in participatory, integrated and sustainable
urban planning and land management in order to upgrade the urban poor settlements and ensure access to basic
services for vulnerable communities. A pilot project will be conducted to upgrade the Urban Poor Settlement (UPS)
called the “Stung Meanchey canal community” located in four villages in the Stung Meanchey Commune Muoy, Stung
Meanchey Khan, Phnom Penh.
The PPCH will mobilize its resources, share – with other Cambodian municipalities and provinces representatives –
its experience, and improve capacities in a peer-to-peer exchange with the City of Paris. The NACPC and the NLC
will build on their past experience to consolidate their successes and overcome challenges. The AIMF will provide its
operational experience and expertise in international network with cities in specific local development issues.
