Open Development Cambodia (ODC) is an “Open Data” website, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. The “Open Data” movement is based on the simple premise that data collected for public interest should be publicly available – without restrictions. Information or “data” in the public domain should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish. Open Development Cambodia (ODC) does not promote any particular perspective, agenda or bias other than to provide objective information about Cambodia and its development.
Workshop @ GIZ / Civil Peace Service, Phnom Penh, Cambodia – 10th January 2014
To strengthen the reconciliation and the peace-building process, the Civil Peace Service (CPS) ensures that Cambodian citizens and Khmer Rouge survivors are thoroughly informed about Tribunal processes to foster public opinions about the outcomes. It is hoped that understanding, and a feeling of citizen ownership of the legal process will result in a genuine sense of justice.
Meeting & Workshop @ Transparency International Cambodia, Phnom Penh, Cambodia – 13h January 2014
One global movement sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. In 1993, a few individuals decided to take a stance against corruption and created Transparency International. Now present in more than 100 countries, the movement works relentlessly to stir the world’s collective conscience and bring about change.
