In Cambodia, there are ways for citizens to give input to the local authorities, for example through village and commune meetings. With these two studies, we confirmed concerns that persons with disabilities are often not able to use public services and inform the local authorities of their needs. At the same time, the local authorities are often not able to, and do not know how to reach out to, inform, and involve persons with disabilities. The two studies were carried out as part of the Advocacy and Communication for Change Programme. Research was carried out in two phases – each covering half of the province of Pursat.
