Our Experience

For five years till 2014, CPS was a research unit of the Cambodian Economic Association (CEA). It was set up with a plan to become independent in several years, leaving CEA to be just a network organisation. Under CEA, CPS successfully implemented many policy-relevant research projects for clients and partners such as the World Bank, IFC, CIDA/CCO, IDRC, UNICEF, AusAID/ODI, Oxfam, TDRI, Brookings Institution, and other international and local NGOs.
