Active in the Kingdom of Cambodia since 2005, SNV implements projects in the agriculture, energy and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sectors.

Using market-based approaches, we emphasise environmental sustainability and inclusive development, especially for women and marginalised communities. We lower the barriers to economic and social development and promote local ownership.

We provide tailor-made and sustainable interventions that are effective at raising incomes, providing meaningful employment opportunities, and improving access to and coverage of basic services. Our interventions acknowledge the critical importance of improved climate change resilience and mitigation strategies to achieve sustainable change.

We work directly to promote behaviour change in the community. We catalyse systems level change and analyse interventions with a business case in mind. We introduce new and innovative technology in production and service development. We help build the skills needed for meaningful employment and sectoral growth.

Our work is aligned with the country’s national development priorities and strategies. We work in close collaboration with the royal government, civil society and private sector.
