Our Story

The Analyzing Development Issues Centre (ADIC) was registered with the Ministry of Interior of Cambodia in April 2011. It has been involved in community organization work, participatory action research (PAR) and policy-type of applied research across several internationally funded projects.

ADIC emerged from the Analyzing Development Issues (ADI) Project which was operated by the Cooperation Committee for Cambodia (CCC) from1999 to 2011. Current ADIC staff contributed as lead authors to ADI Project research reports published by the CCC, the Learning Institute, CDRI’s Cambodia Development Review, among others.

The track record of ADIC team’s experiences in the Northeast provinces and Tonle Sap provinces including Kampong Thom Province dates back to 2011.

The Cambodia-based nonprofit previously managed a needs-driven research and policy advocacy project in five Tonle Sap’s provinces in collaboration with WorldFish and Mahidol University, Thailand. During that year, WorldFish first teamed up with ADIC and other NGO partners to promote community engagement and support under the“Strengthening Aquatic Resources Governance (STARGO) 2011-2013” project and the“Aquatic Agricultural System (AAS) Program”.

This initiative — which used Collaborating for Resilience (CoRe) and Participatory Action Research (PAR) approaches — covered five Tonle Sap provinces. ADIC later partnered with Mahidol University for a regional research and action project covering four countries of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand on promoting safe migration.

ADIC adopts Participatory Action Research (PAR) in its work with its underlying concepts of community empowerment, gaining greater agency over an individual's own life, ability to act collectively, and own initiatives using existing resources. This approach is operationalized by constantly walking through the cyclical process of reflecting, questioning, analyzing and acting on issues in one's daily life.

Through these processes over the years, ADIC fashioned an important lesson leading to coining the concept of “going by the flow of community life (GFCL)” which is uniquely different and suitable to local contexts. GFCL moves away from the traditional way of inviting people to an event that serves mainly the outsider's agenda. Instead, GFCL suggests meeting people in their own places or spaces and observing the emerging process of community people discussing their own agenda yet inviting outsiders to share it.

ADIC utilizes PAR in its approach to work with community leaders and members in the Northeast and Tonle Sap regions — with notable success in water management conflicts, land encroachment issues, educational management, and land boundary conflicts. ADIC still sees the need to continue the above two major strategic areas, given the continuous challenges to natural resources governance, especially in indigenous peoples’ areas, and areas that are food insecure, and vulnerable to various shocks.

In addition, for long term sustainability, ADIC has undertaken consultancy services in the form of training, research and evaluation for government ministries or departments, NGOs, and development partners. In addition, ADIC consults on strategic planning, M&E, research and evaluation using the latest technology and data analysis tools.

Research interests and development issues sought by ADIC include land, natural resources, food security, value chains and trade, child rights, education, youth, and elderly people. ADIC now sees the need to nurture a customized focus, as well as an institutional partnership approach that is expected to produce mutually beneficial results for all stakeholders.
