Background of the position

In Cambodia, PIN has been active since 2008 through a wide range of initiatives in both long-term development and emergency assistance. Currently, PIN programming portfolio focuses on promoting alternative livelihoods using the market systems development approach, green energy and climate-sensitive market solutions, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) for sustainable jobs creation and disaster risk reduction and resilience in both urban and rural parts of Cambodia.
As part of its Disaster Management and Urban Resilience programme, PIN is currently working on multiple fronts to enhance the anticipatory and preparedness capacities of key disaster management stakeholders in Cambodia, mainly the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM), its provincial and district offices, MOWRAM and other relevant stakeholders. Over the past years, PIN has supported NCDM with the design, development and broad-based operationalization of Cambodia’s national flood early warning system “EWS1294”, which has become the official government monitoring and information management tool for predicting monsoon-induced flooding and alerting at-risk communities ahead of potential hazard situations.
In Cambodia, EWS1294 system features 30 active sensors placed strategically across Cambodia’s river network, has 130,000+ registered users and has already sent out 1.8m+ alert messages since its inception. At present, PIN is working closely with NCDM and Cambodia’s cell service providers to upgrade EWS1294 to a broadcasting-based model that will ensure an even broader population coverage.
In Laos,, PIN is piloting a project to develop an early warning system in the southern provinces of Laos, in collaboration with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection. After the successful completing the pilot, PIN will scale up the system in North and South of Laos in order to develop the national system.
PIN’s strategic vision is to continue to invest into Cambodia’s disaster risk reduction landscape by exploring innovative linkages between contextualized disaster management approaches, climate-smart solutions and ways to integrate shock-responsive social protection mechanisms to gradually build resilience of the most vulnerable populations across Cambodia.
