Urban Poor Community Management Information System Development for Sahmakum Teang TnautWednesday, December 26, 2018
Urban Poor Community Management Information System is a web-based local database for internal Sahmakum Teang Tnaut’s staff updating data and storing data.
Client: Phnom Penh based Sahmakum Teang Tnaut (STT) was set up in September 2005 and officially registered with the Ministry of Interior in December 2006. ‘Teang Tnaut’ means ‘Sugar Palm Leaf’ in Khmer and is used for house construction, thatch roofs, sugar, and packaging. This icon of the Cambodian landscape evokes simplicity and usefulness which STT tries to reflect in its work with urban communities. From the outset, STT has had a focus on infrastructure upgrading but over the past decade, many communities have been impacted by development-related land alienation and evictions. Because of this STT has strengthened its research and advocacy to draw attention to a development policy that in Phnom Penh alone has led to 270,000 residents being displaced since 1990. By supporting genuine community complaints and grievances STT and its partners have been helping communities articulate their concerns to local and international media, donors and other NGOs & INGOs.
Services: to provide support to STT’s team to develop an online community database so that it can be accessible publicly.
