Capacity Building for Cambodian Public Officials

Project Outline
In this project, mid-career civil servants from the Cambodian government will be invited to workshops and training in policy formulation and capacity building, designed to contribute to the smooth running of the financial and administrative affairs of Cambodia. In this year, the final year of the project, sixty managers and directors from central ministries will take part in a workshop focusing on self-development and personnel evaluation. Moreover, ten outstanding individuals will be selected from the workshop participants for invitation to a week-long overseas training program designed to improve capacities in human resources development and organizational management. As a means to create training materials designed for regional civil servants that can contribute to problem solving in various areas, specialists from Cambodia, Japan, Singapore and elsewhere will collaborate on a survey to assess needs in local administration in rural Cambodia.

●Workshop for Mid-career Civil Servants
From September 17 to 20, 2012, workshops were held in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, with the objective of raising the capacity of civil servants. At the event, 60 director-level employees from various central ministries learned organizational management through lectures given by teachers from Japan and Singapore on the topics of communication theory, leadership and performance evaluation within organizations. During the question and answer session, a lively debate took place on the ideal type of management for increasing the strength of an institution, contributing greatly to the participants' knowledge of the subject.
