Position: Project Assistant (SNV Netherlands Development Organisation)__Deadline:17-April

SNV Netherlands Development Organization is a not-for-profit international development Organisation, founded in the Netherlands in 1965. SNV operates in more than 25 developing countries in Asia, Latin America, and Africa. For detailed information on SNV visit: www.snv.org. 

Working in Cambodia since 2005, SNV implements projects in the agriculture, energy, and water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sectors. Using market-based approaches, we emphasize environmental sustainability and inclusive development. We lower the barriers to economic and social development and promote local ownership. SNV provides tailor-made and sustainable interventions that are effective at raising incomes, providing meaningful employment opportunities, and improving access to and coverage of basic services. Our interventions acknowledge the critical importance of improved climate change resilience and mitigation strategies to achieve sustainable change. Our work is aligned with the country’s national development priorities and strategies. We work in close collaboration with the royal government, civil society, and private sector. Our multi-national team of experts works from our national office in Phnom Penh.

SME development

The use of biomass for cooking fuel and associated smoke exposure contributes to serious health problems, leading to the death of 14,000 people in Cambodia per year. Many more lives, mainly those of women and children, are affected by smoke-related health conditions that reduce overall quality and length of life. Further, the smoke emissions from open fires add to greenhouse gasses that are responsible for climate change. Finally, cooking is strongly connected to livelihoods, gender and inequalities at household level.

Together with our partner Energizing Development (EnDev) and RVO from the Netherlands we stimulate SME development in the clean cooking markets through tools including ‘results based finance’, investments funds and capacity development towards the public and private sector. The aim is to create new dynamics in the supply chain of cookstoves that may lead to a stronger offering of products (electric or high tier biomass stoves) that enhance adoption of smoke free cooking in rural Cambodia.

Strengthening the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem for Higher Tier Clean Cooking in Cambodia

The “Higher Tier Cooking Component” (HTCC) under the programme “Strengthening the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem for Clean Cooking” is co-financed by the European Commission, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Danida. The programme is coordinated by RVO and in partnership with EnDev.

The objective of the SEE-HTCCC programme is to improve access to clean energy services and promote the use of clean cooking methods. It aims to resolve imperfections in market systems of clean cooking products and services, removing bottleneck in access to finance, and fostering an improved enabling environment for enterprises to grow and mature.

The programme will focus its activities on the greater Tonle Sap area while also aligning with those regions where the EnDev CIC programme is already active through local governments. The project will look at potential synergies with EU programming in the region, while being mindful of potential supplier limitations. The programme offers two funding mechanisms (Result-Based Financing and Innovation Funds) to MSMEs that sell cookstoves and biodigesters in five target provinces in Cambodia; Battambang, Pursat, Siem Reap, Kampot and Kampong Speu provinces. A total of 20,000 cookstoves and 1,000 biodigesters will be incentivized between 2023 to 2025.
