The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is Switzerland’s international cooperation agency within the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA). SDC is responsible for the overall coordination of development activities as well as for the humanitarian aid delivered by the Swiss Confederation.
The SDC goal of development cooperation is that of reducing poverty. It is meant to foster economic self-reliance and state autonomy, to contribute to the improvement of production conditions, to help in finding solutions to environmental problems, and to provide better access to education and basic healthcare services. 

SDC supports UNICEF Cambodia and its embedded work with the Royal Government of Cambodia’s sub-national democratic development reform. SDC will support duty bearers, including members of the Committees for Women and Children to influence development plans and budgets to be evidence-based, child- and gender-sensitive and linked to sector policies.  Through the SDC support, it is planned that sub-national authorities and communities have the means and capacity to monitor and partner with service providers to minimize risk, vulnerability and poverty.
