Effective cooperation through Joint Programming with nine EU Member States and Switzerland, aligning with Cambodia’s national priorities.
KEY ACHIEVEMENTS IN 2019
The €111 million EU COVID-19 response, part of the €443 million Team Europe response announced mid-year is the largest in ASEAN (almost half of the total). EU support is exclusively made of grant assistance, it combines new allocations (around 5%), funds already programmed (55%) and redirected funds (40%), and notably includes support to Social Protection. All related actions were approved before the end of 2020, including numerous actions with civil society organisations to support urban and rural families, most affected by the economic crisis.
The entire Multi-Annual Indicative Programme (MIP) 2014-2020 has been committed in 2020 (€395 million of grant) with strong policy dialogue on Public Finance Management (PFM), Education and Fisheries sectors.
Sharp increase in approved blending projects (€247.1 million in 2020 only) including two with the European Investment Bank.
