Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS)
Show close time for other time zones
Australia has implemented two separate five-year programs: Ending Violence Against Women (EVAW) (2012-2017; AUD13.5M) and Disabilities Rights Initiative Cambodia (DRIC) (2014-2018; AUD10.4M). Australia wishes to consolidate these two programs through a new five-year program—Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS), building on the achievements of the past EVAW and DRIC investments and supporting Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) progress on social protection and public financial management (PFM) reform.
This consolidation is expected to meet ongoing needs for service delivery, provide activity management efficiencies, facilitate intersectionality between the two sectors, and provide value for money.
The overall goal of ACCESS is to improve sustainability of quality, inclusive services for people with a disability and women affected by Gender-Based Violence (GBV). ACCESS will pursue two outcomes: 1)- Improved budget processes supporting services for persons with disabilities and for women affected by GBV; and 2) - Increased accessibility of quality services for persons with disabilities and for women affected by GBV.
The ACCESS program will be an AUD 15 million investment, commencing mid-2018 through to 30 June 2021, with the possibility to extend for a further two years. The program will provide technical assistance, and fund activities.
