Cambodia Communication Institute (CCI)
After more than twenty years of conflict and international isolation, the mainstream communication infrastructures of Cambodia were severely affected. Moreover, the country lost the majority of its educated and skilled media professionals. Set up in 1994 as the first media-training centre in the nation, the Cambodia Communication Institute (CCI), a joint project of UNESCO, the Royal Government and DANIDA, intends to assist in the reconstruction and development of the communication sector.
UNESCO has since then continued its support to the CCI with the production of manuals and materials in Khmer. The materials, adapted to the Cambodian context, are being distributed among journalists, policy makers, NGOs and media experts with the aim to influence change at the policy level as well as at the grassroot level.
