About the Cambodia and Laos Programmes of People in Need:

People in Need (PIN) is a Czech non-profit, non-governmental organization that has been providing relief and development support in both developing and conflict regions around the globe since 1992. In Asia, PIN has a growing portfolio of projects focused on accelerating the uptake of green technologies in agricultural value chains through innovative applications of market systems approaches.

In Cambodia, we implement programmes on Green Energy and WASH, Disaster Management and Urban Resilience, TVET, and Alternative Livelihoods. In recent years, People in Need has contributed to improved and strengthened disaster preparedness through the Early Warning System for disasters. In case the country is hit by a natural disaster, we will provide an immediate response to affected people—like during the floods in 2011, 2013, and 2020, and in 2017 when Cambodia was hit by excessive drought.

In Laos, we are implementing a pilot project focusing on an Early Warning System with possible scale-up on the national level.
