Country Manager Cambodia with Forum Syd

Forum Syd is a Swedish civil society organisation focusing on democracy and human rights, gender equality, and environment and climate change. Our vision is “a just and sustainable world where all people have the power to effect change”. We believe in building strong civil societies where the power is shared by many and the resources are distributed fairly; where people have power to determine their own lives, influence their country’s development and, together, eradicate poverty. 

Forum Syd is a member-based organisation and, from a right based approach, works with development issues through advocacy and capacity building of partner organisations. Our programmes are currently based in Colombia, Kenya, Tanzania, Belarus and Cambodia. In Cambodia the office is situated in Phnom Penh and we cooperate with 18 partner organisations throughout the country. Forum Syd has been working in Cambodia since 1994.
