Waste Summit 2020
Waste is created in every country. In Cambodia, robust economic development coupled with a rapidly growing population mean the amount of waste generated in urban center, particularly Phnom Penh, is growing dramatically. The capital city generates around 4.09 million tons per year of solid waste, 55.3% of the total waste comes from household, followed by hotels/guesthouses (16.7%), restaurants (13.8%), markets (7.5%), shops (5.4%) and offices (1.4%). Could these wastes be turned into energy? Cambodia, apart from waste management issue, has also suffer from significant energy shortage. The country has among the highest electricity prices in the regions, especially in rural areas which could cost up to USD 1 per kWh. Given Cambodia’s alarming level of waste production and the rising concern over energy access, the process of turning waste to energy could be the future solution for the country.
Political Education Academy 2020
The Political Education Academy is organized by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Cambodia with the support of our partner, Politikoffee. The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) recognizes youth as a positive force for transformative positive social changes and aims to enhance their participation in Cambodian politics. The political participation of young people needs to be meaningful and effective, going beyond token gestures. This requires that young people have fundamental knowledge on politics and leadership skills, as well as a strong connection between each other in order to be able to share experiences, build trust in a polarized political environment, collaborate and support each other. Through the annual “Political Education Academy”, launching for the first time in spring 2019, this year 2020 we aim to continue supporting the active participation of youth in political processes and empower the next generation of political, governmental and civil society leaders.
KAS Picture Oppose Plastic
Clean Living - Smart Choice
In Phnom Penh alone, around 10 million plastic bags are used on a daily basic. From food vendors to clothing retails, most items we are consuming are wrapped, packaged or served using plastic. In a place where plastics are so embedded in people’s lives, how can we switch consumer behavior to reduce such consumption?
Call for Papers
The 19th Law Talk Publication “Law in the Digital Age: Protection of Consumer Rights”
The ASEAN Strategic Action Plan on Consumer Protection (ASAPCP) 2016-2025 has been implementing by the ASEAN Member States (AMS), and each state has adopted the law on consumer protection. Cambodia’s Law on Consumer Protection promulgated via the Royal Kram No. NS/RKM/1119/016 dated 02 November 2019 aims to ensure the protection of consumers and to promote a good faith of competition.
Plastic in Economy
Similar to global context, waste management issue is quite challenging in many municipalities and districts of Cambodia as well as in Phnom Penh Capital. However, we are facing lots of difficulties to manage it in a proper manner. Just in Phnom Penh, the amount of collected waste amount is about 3,000 ton/day in 2019. This is a very concerned data for open dumping of those mixed waste to a landfill which would create many environmental impacts and lost many waste-to-resource recovery options to promote circular economy in Cambodia.
