Strategy

This fourth Strategic Plan 2016-2020 is designed by covering 5 years period from capturing all lessons learned and best practices from the last phase, particularly addressing remaining challenges/problems including economic empowerment, rights empowerment and an integrated approach for improving welfare of IPs in all ICSO target areas and groups, particular in Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri and the existed strategy in the target areas of the feasibility IPOs included IPAC. ICSO also considers how its role can be most effective within the continually changing development in Cambodia as well as in SE Asia and global level, especially in relation to indigenous people’s protection and development.

New approach for ICSO to achieve its overall goal:

ICSO will make as a priority the implementation of the 3 new main program components which build on the strengths of previous ICSO support interventions. The 3 new components will consist of holistic development projects within each program component and will be linked together in that they will together strengthen IPs core needed knowledge and skills. To achieve the ultimate goal of the organization, ICSO will pay more effort towards resources mobilization, coordination, partnership and relations, networking and advocacy. This will ensure all expected outcomes and outputs will be achieved for each program component and finally realize the vision, mission and goal of the organization.

ICSO will follow CREDO Concept/Principle for implementation which will also ensure ownership and sustainability at the program beneficiary level. The CREDO principle involves:

1)      Go to meet indigenous peoples (IPs);

2)      Live among them;

3)      Learn from them;

4)      Plan with them;

5)      Work with them;

6)      Start with what they know;

7)      Build on what they have;

8)      Teach by showing, learn by doing;

9)      Not a showcase, but a pattern;

10)   Not odds and ends, but a system;

11)   Not piecemeal but integrated approach;

12)   Not to conform but to transform; and

13)   Not relief, but release.

Programs and Projects Prioritization for 5 years 2016-2020:

Based on the completed consultative workshops, ICSO has chosen the following 5 projects to be implemented. These projects received the highest scores from stakeholders and communities representatives as presented below:

Top 5 projects selected for 2016-2020 Scores

ICSO also agreed that NRM, Environment, Climate Change and Ecotourism project(s) should be part of IPOs & IPAC strengthening and it will become an activities-based project to begin once the resources or funds are available.
