- Internet Society Cambodia Chapter (ISOC-Cambodia)
- Open Development Cambodia. Open Development Cambodia is an “Open Data” website, the first of its kind in mainland Southeast Asia. The global “Open Data” movement is based on the simple premise that data collected for public interest should be publicly available – without restrictions, and that information or “data” in the public domain should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions. We have no agenda, other than to offer you food for thought.
- Sithi.org – Cambodia Human Rights Portal. Sithi.org was launched in 2009. It is a project of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR), a non-political, independent, non-governmental Phnom Penh based organisation that works to promote and protect democracy and human rights throughout Cambodia. Sithi.org reflects many of the values and approaches of the CCHR; engaging in non-aggressive dialogue with all stakeholders; encouraging civil society organisations to take a more sophisticated and collaborative approach to bring about change; and exchanging knowledge in an innovative way to empower all those working on human rights in Cambodia. The development of Sithi.org relies on collaboration by and input from all those interested in and working on promoting and protecting human rights in Cambodia.
