In 2009-2010 research was commissioned to understand the information and media needs of Cambodia’s indigenous peoples. Consultations were held in seven of the fifteen provinces in Cambodia where indigenous people live. The report was finalized in 2012 and contained a recom-mendation that indigenous peoples needed their own indigenous media support organization. Conserve Indigenous Peoples Languages Organization (CIPL) was, therefore, developed and registered with Ministry of Interior on 11th Oct 2016 (registration number 6672 pro.kor). CIPL has a role in strengthening indigenous voice on issues affecting them and to help them raise that voice up to the world through media channels.
In discussion with indigenous communities and Building Community Voices, work began in mid-2015 to phase out the activities of Building Community Voices, and transfer staff to a new independent indigenous-led NGO. The former indigenous staff of Building Community Voices has transferred to become staff of the new Conserve Indigenous Peoples Languages Organization (CIPL).
With the establishment of Conserve Indigenous Peoples Language Organization in 2016, an indigenous-led and staffed organization, one its key aims is to ensure indigenous community leadership and ownership of communication and media activities. The priorities and activities of Conserve Indigenous Peoples Language Organization will be shaped and guided by the indigenous communities that it supports.
Conserve Indigenous Peoples Language Organization has an important and unique role in Cambodia in strengthening indigenous people’s access to information in remote parts of Cambodia and in their own languages. It has a role in strengthening indigenous voice on matters impacting on indigenous rights, livelihoods and culture: namely the loss of indigenous lands through illegal land grabbing and the Government’s granting of economic land concessions on indigenous homelands.
