This year, Cambodia marks the celebration 17th of International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, under the theme: leaving no one behind: Indigenous Peoples and the call for a new social contract.

Since 2013, indigenous communities in Cambodia have organized the event in their respective communities and used this event as a platform to manifesting their cultural traditions, and raising their voices regarding their concerns and issues facing their lives.

Annually, the Royal Government of Cambodia’s Prime Minister issues key messages to mark the event, and the Ministry of Rural Development organizes it with the participation of CSOs, and the local communities.
