Job Announcement: Senior Project Management Officer and Project Finance Officer





National Committee for Sub-National Democratic Development Secretariat (NCDDS)


The National Committee for Sub National Democratic Development Secretariat (NCDDS) and World Food Programme (WFP) have a long-standing relationship focused on strengthening sub- national and commune council capacity and local development in Cambodia.  In 2013-14, NCDDS was part of the steering committee for piloting the Productive Assets and Livelihood Support Program (PALS) supported by WFP with the aim of promoting livelihoods and providing regular employment opportunities for food insecure and vulnerable households through labor-intensive works, creating or rehabilitating community assets. Through a participatory process with the commune councils, communities selected assets that contributed to higher agricultural productivity, increased access to markets and social infrastructure, and improved resilience to climate shocks.

In 2016-2017 NCDDS, with cooperation and financial support from WFP, developed a guidance booklet on the integration of socially inclusive climate change adaptation (CCA) approaches into the Commune/Sangkat (C/S) planning guidelines. 5,000 copies being printed and distributed to all 25 provincial capitals. The booklet was also mainstreamed in the 2017 CS Development Planning and Investment Programming Guidelines as well as the revised C/S Project Implementation Manual (PIM).

In 2019, WFP launched a new Five-Year Country Strategic Plan (CSP) with a focus on contributing to achieving SDG 2 “Zero Hunger” and SDG 17 “Partnership” in Cambodia. The CSP’s Strategic Objective 2 (SO2) aims to support poor and vulnerable communities in Cambodia to be more resilient to shocks and stresses in the food system whilst strengthening the capacity of national and sub-national institutions to mitigate shocks/risks, including disaster risk reduction and climate change impacts on local food systems, in line with the Royal Government of Cambodia’s long-term strategy of poverty reduction.  WFP and NCDDS will work in partnership over the period of the CSP (five years) to achieve these goals to support stronger and resilient and food systems, with a focus on sub-national capacity strengthening through a strategic signed in 2019.

This project forms part of this strategic collaboration between WFP and NCDDS and builds on the previous and ongoing work at the aim to mitigate the impact of floods on the food security of flood affected households and communities through providing training to provincial, district and commune officials on mainstreaming DRR/CCA in CIP, then executing the plan in 16 communes in Battambang, Pursat, Kampong Thom and Kampong Chhnang provinces. This project will be interlinked other programmes being implemented through NCDDS, DPs and also other areas of WFP’s CSP. Activities will include a stakeholder workshop to identify and document key lesson learned and best practices from this project and other similar initiatives to be adapted and replicate in other communes and/ or provinces in the future.

The detail activities of this project will be identified through a participatory process and in consultation with relevant NCDDS divisions and Subnational Administrations (SNAs).  And are also in line with Government policies and programmes such as the Cambodia’s Sustainable Development Goals Framework 2016-2030, National Strategic Development Plan 2019-2023 with regard to promoting disaster risk management and climate change resilience and adaptation and improving food security at sub-national level; and the WFP Country Strategic Plan 2019-2023.
