2. Monthly Meeting
Community coordination is a central activity of the HRTF Secretariat. Monthly community coordination meetings, facilitated by the HRFT Secretariat, allow for sharing of information and experiences and ensure ownership of advocacy work undertaken by communities and supporting NGOs. In the 2008 to 2009 project period, communities under threat of eviction took ownership of this forum and are helping each other approach Government officials or plan for joint action across communities. The increased sharing of experiences, improved networking amongst communities and collective action are outcomes that can lead to change. Community coordination meetings thus serve to equip communities to assert their rights in the face of eviction threats. In 2011-2013, 74 community coordination meetings will be organized per month targeting a total of 150 community members 74 people per meeting representing the 74 at-risk urban communities of Phnom Penh.
