The assessment of the German-Cambodian Land Rights Program analyses whether and how this development measure contributes to the progressive realization of human rights. It finds that the program needs to undertake significant efforts to reach additional vulnerable groups and to increase its accountability vis-à-vis the Cambodian population. In general, for development programmes to contribute to the realization of human rights, partners in the program need to have a clear human rights orientation, backed up by a governance structure in the respective sector which is conducive to participation, non-discrimination, transparency and accountability.
The assessment was commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in May 2012. All views expressed in this study represent the opinion of the German Institute for Human Rights, as an independent National Human Rights Institution.
