Cambodia Programme Overview

The Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (CRSHIP) works to increase sustained access to improved sanitation and promote good hygiene practices in rural communities. CRSHIP actively supports national WASH sector objectives and partner capacity building, placing learning at the centre of all of its work. The programme works through local NGOs and PDRDs (Provincial Departments of Rural Development), with the Ministry of Rural Development leading the Programme Coordination Mechanism.

Since its launch in 2011, CRSHIP has contributed significantly to the nation’s ODF results; 39% of all Open Defecation Free (ODF) communes and 57% of ODF villages in Cambodia are linked to the programme. Many of these localities are found in some of the country’s most difficult areas.
