Cambodian Red Cross Discusses Safe Migration With IFRC | 28 November – 1 December 2017 | Cambodia

The CRC representatives met with Helen Brunt, IFRC Senior Migration Officer, from 28 November to 1 December 2017 to discuss on migration issues. The meeting was aimed to i) discuss AoF7: Migration with leadership, staff, and volunteers of CRC, including scope for potential IFRC support and National Society peer-to-peer exchanges, ii) meet with key local authorities in Preah Vihear Province and support CRC in their auxiliary role and relationship with the Cambodian Government, and iii) learn more about CRC’s Restoring Family Links (RFL) and ‘safe migration’ awareness-raising activities.

The visit provided IFRC a unique opportunity to experience first-hand activities conducted by CRC related to migration. Since the start of 2017, ‘Safe migration’ messaging has been included in awareness-raising activities primarily focused on RFL and ‘safer rural communities’ in Preah Vihear Province which borders Sisaket Province in Thailand – an initiative supported by ICRC.

This mission to Cambodia also provided the opportunity to meet with leadership of CRC and share updates on IFRC’s Global and Regional Migration Strategies and plans, as well a meet with local government officials and introduce the RCRC Movement’s humanitarian mandate in relation to migration and cross-border movements of people in the Mekong region.

Implementing the Law on Disaster Management in Cambodia – Developing Subsidiary Legislation

Implementing the Law on Disaster Management in Cambodia – Developing Subsidiary Legislation

In June 2015 Cambodia’s legislature passed the Law on Disaster Management (DM Law). This represents a major shift from an institutional system for disaster management based only on subsidiary legislation, which had been in place since 1995, to a broader and more authoritative legislative mandate on disaster management

The DM Law, like most legislation in Cambodia, provides an ‘umbrella’ mandate that relies on subsidiary legislation to be made by the executive branch, the Government of Cambodia, to provide for more detailed implementation.

The discussion in this report has focused on implementing the DM Law through the subsidiary legislation mandated within the law itself. The recommendations for development of substantive decrees are based on the specific provisions that require them, and the overall objectives and goals of the DM Law. An effort has also been made to address the key challenges identified by stakeholders and reviews of the pre-existing system. The report includes some additional areas proposed for subsidiary legislation for consideration of the government, which are not mandated by the DM Law, but fall within its general scope.
