Oxfam offices were opened in Phnom Penh in 1981.
Supply of emergency aid gradually gave way to a
programme of infrastructure rehabilitation, together with
lobbying and advocacy work.
In 1992 the focus of Oxfam’s work in Cambodia
changed from technical assistance and support for
government institutions to developing the capacity of
local non-governmental organisations serving the
needs of poor and marginalised communities in rural
More than 65 partner organisations are currently
supported by 8 Oxfam affiliates. They carry out a range of
programmes from:
Micro credit schemes
Community based natural resource management
Research and advocacy on land-right issues to
support for civil and political rights
Conflict resolution and campaigning against
domestic violence
Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)
