In Cambodia, 4.14 million people (WSP, 2011) (~27% of Cambodia’s population) live in areasaffected by flooding, high groundwater, floating, riverbank or coastal conditions impacting theirability to access appropriate and improved sanitation solutions. Combined with this, the Cambodian Government has set an ambitious target of 100% sanitation coverage countrywide by 2025.

Borne from the learnings and collaboration of EWB’s partners in the sanitation sector, EWB Australia initiated the Sanitation in Challenging Environments (SCE) Program in 2014. The initiative promotes sector-wide action and knowledge sharing, mobilises sector actors, develops appropriate technologies, and builds capacity of implementing partners. The SCE Program drives innovation and collaboration that contributes to the overall WASH sector’s aim of achieving 100% sanitation coverage by 2025, and a core part of this is increasing sector-wide access to sanitation in challenging environments.

EWB Australia is seeking an experienced professional to lead and manage EWB Australia’s Sanitation in Challenging Environments (SCE) program in Cambodia.  Based in Phnom Penh, the Program Manager will work collaboratively to strengthen the sanitation sector in Cambodia to achieve universal access to sanitation.
