Title Research Capacity Development for Environmental Management in Cambodia: Outlining a Multi-Sector Approach Series Title UNU Policy Brief Volume/Issue No. 2011/2 Publication Date 2011 Publisher United Nations University Abstract Cambodian academic institutions’ insufficient research capacity has been stalling the advancement of the nation’s much-needed environmental planning and management. Drawing on the project “Multi-Sector Involvement for Research Capacity Development in Cambodia”, which promoted small-scale research activities at the Royal University of Phnom Penh in 2009–2011, in this brief we suggest that research capacity development in Cambodia needs to take a multi-sector approach that builds on: 1) the recognition of the influence of non-governmental organizations on research; 2) the link between research and public policy; and 3) inter-university networking. The brief concludes by exploring the potential application of this approach to research capacity development in LDCs in a broader context.
