Request for Expression of Interest

Short term Individual Consultancy


Following the first elections of Commune/ Sangkat Councils held in 2001, Royal Government of Cambodia created Commune Committees for Women and Children (CCWC). National Committee for the Management of Decentralization and De-Concentration Reform (NCDD) formulated and issued the following related guidelines in 2007 and 2008:

  1. A) Guidelines on preparation and establishment of CCWC in all Communes and Sangkats in Cambodia
  2. B) Guidelines on the organization and functioning of the CWCC including roles and responsibilities, grant and supporting mechanisms.

Following the formation of such structure in 2009, members of the CCWC were trained on the functioning of the committee.

Also, in recent years, there are many new guidelines, policies and national programmes developed and designed, such as the Social Service Implementation Manual issued by the Ministry of Interior (MoI), the Community Pre-School Management Guidebook, the Child Protection Guidebook etc. These policies and programmes have delegated more roles and responsibilities to the CCWC and more particularly to the Commune Focal Point to Women and Children (CFPWC).

Therefore, the current functions need to be reviewed and adjusted to align with the new development as above mentioned, so that CCWC, CFPWC could have clarity on expectations of them and could perform their roles and responsibilities effectively and efficiently.
