This grand event would hardly exist without momentous support from our partners, counting from the private sector, and business associations, to civil society, NGOs, and international organizations. With a shared priority in making Cambodia’s development sustainable and managing waste more effectively, the support from all relevant partners serves as a dynamic booster to make the objective of the Waste Summit 2022 more possible to achieve.
Freedom, justice, solidarity are the basic principles underlying the work of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS).
The KAS is a political foundation, closely associated with the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU). As co-founder of the CDU and the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Konrad Adenauer (1876-1967) united Christian-social conservative and liberal traditions. His name is synonymous with the democratic reconstruction of Germany, the firm alignment of foreign policy with the trans-Atlantic community of values, the vision of a unified Europe and an orientation towards the social market economy. His intellectual heritage continues to serve both as our aim as well as our obligation today. In our European and international cooperation efforts we work for people to be able to live self-determined lives in freedom and dignity. We make a contribution underpinned by values to helping Germany meet its growing responsibilities throughout the world.
KAS has been working in Cambodia since 1994, striving to support the Cambodian people in fostering dialogue, building networks and enhancing scientific projects. Thereby, the foundation works towards creating an environment conducive to economic and social development. All programs are conceived and implemented in close cooperation with the Cambodian partners on central and sub-national levels.
