Monday, 02 June 2008 , Written by « Pact Cambodia »   
 In February 2002, Cambodia took a major step towards political decentralization by organizing the election of 1,621commune councils.

In addition to fulfilling their administrative tasks, they engage in dispute resolution, plan and implement development projects, provide some agency functions for the central and provincial governments, and conduct advocacy. Development activities consist mainly of small scale infrastructure and public goods projects, most notably involving roads and irrigation.
