The Cambodia IRAM Network

Traditional indigenous communities are organized at the level of villages. However, the challenges that indigenous communities are now facing can seldom be solved just at such level. New challenges forces indigenous communities to establish links and networks in order to extend their capacity for solidarity, advocacy and rights defense.  Through the support from ICSO’s capacity building unit, the 77 Indigenous Peoples Working Group (IPWG) people, included 18 women, who were selected by their elders and IP community people from 15 provinces mobilized indigenous communities for consultation and coordinating and have been played a networking, institutionalizing, organizing, capacity building role for advocating.

In collaboration with NGOs, they lodge their complaints to the relevant government departments on issues related land and natural resource which occurred in their communities. They have produced case studies and successfully presented their issues during a press conference.  UNPFII, ESCR and now ICERD are being used to take issues to UN committees who then make recommendation to Government.

Through the regular coaching, mentoring and supporting, 54 IPWG people, including 11 females, from 8 provinces, were able to develop small proposals with clear of financial management and transparency procedures. The IPWG people provided coaching, mentoring and supporting to 356 Focal Person in communities; at least 80% out of 356 focal persons are able to disseminate legal awareness to communities and indigenous communities. In some areas people are interested in the concept of community organizing. The IPWG people have conveyed that it is time for indigenous people to get organize to advance collective rights, and protect natural resources.
