Capacity building of the DPOs is an on-going process across the country to build the capacity of leadership/ management skill of the DPOs/Women with Disabilities Federations (WwDF) through Technical Support Group (TSG) and senior management group of CDPO.

[Added: 2017/04/30]

4. Recommendation:

Develop links with other DPOs at district levels, including those supported by Cambodia Disability Inclusive Development Fund (CDIDF) of component 4, in building up provincial DPOs, instead of promoting new district and provincial level DPOs from scratch.

Management Response: [Added: 2016/12/01] [Last Updated: 2017/04/30]

Partially agreed

This recommendation is not clear. CDIDF grantees are not necessarily DPOs but rather NGOs working in other fields beside disability. UN doesn’t promote establishment of new DPOs but rather leave it up to people with disability to determine whether there is a need for new DPOs which will properly represent their voices and interests. However, we do recognize the need to reinforce the linkages and cooperation between various civil society organizations at subnational level (including those supported by DRIC under different components) and will use the following mechanisms to do so.

It is not within the programme budget to support more DPOs; for the remainder of the programme, the focus will be on informally building up leadership capacity within the existing pool of DPOs.
