Cambodia

The GSF-supported 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 supports national WASH sector priorities and partner capacity building, placing learning at the centre of all its work. The programme works through local NGOs and Provincial Departments of Rural Development (PDRDs), with the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD) leading the Programme Coordination Mechanism. 

Since its launch, CRSHIP has contributed significantly to the nation’s progress in increasing sanitation access and ODF results in recent years; over 700,000 people gained access to improved sanitation facilities 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 challenging areas.
