Engineers Without Borders: Dialogues on Development, Cambodia 2014

Published on

The Kingdom of Wonder.

Engineers Without Borders took a group of 15 Australian engineers and students to Cambodia to learn about the role engineering and technology play in development. The trip was a mix of workshops, visiting EWB's partner organisations and learning about the culture and people of Cambodia and how this influences development.

Cambodia is full of so much character, friendly people, a rich and devastating history and complex development challenges. We looked at successes and we looked at failures and we tried to draw some conclusions about what engineers can do to help.

Engineers Without Borders: Dialogues on Development, Cambodia 2014

  1. 1. The Dialogues on Development group visited a family who had received a rain water harvesting system (i.e. water tank) from EWB's partner RainWater Cambodia. Households categorised as 'extremely poor' are the first to receive these. EWB’s Inca Dunphy with Dialogues participants, guides and villagers in Kampot, Cambodia. Photo: Katie Shozi, 2014
  2. 2. Building a concrete water storage tank with community members. The concrete was mixed from local Mekong River sand. Dialogues participants and villagers in Koh Padao, Cambodia. Photo: Katie Shozi, 2014
  3. 3. These women live near the former Boeung Kak Lake in Phnom Penh, where 4000 families were recently evicted to make way for foreign investment. The lake was filled with sand. These women now protest full time for land rights and compensation. Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
  4. 4. An example of what happens when development is not a two-way conversation. Displaced families from Boeung Kak Lake were relocated to this field, an hour outside of Phnom Penh. An aid agency donated a toilet for each plot of land, but the plots have no houses or running water to hook up to the toilets. Near Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
  5. 5. What type of toilet do you use if you live on a floating house in a lake? Piped toilets aren't possible, pit toilets won't work, going into the lake creates health problems. Here is a new type of toilet that EWB and Live & Learn are designing and testing with the community. It floats and waste can be processed onsite. Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
  6. 6. Back in Phnom Penh, tuk tuk drivers relax during a quiet moment. Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
  7. 7. Back in Phnom Penh, the Dialogues group visited the Cambodian School of Prosthetics and Orthotics (CSPO), an organisation EWB has worked with in the past to develop their curriculum. Patients, students and staff at CSPO in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
  8. 8. Students come from all over Asia to learn how to make, fit and prescribe prosthetic and orthotic limbs at CSPO. They also employ and train many people who have these limbs. Students and staff at CSPO in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
  9. 9. Physics students at Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP) presented research to the group about local renewable energy sources. EWB and RUPP have worked together to develop Cambodia’s first renewable energy curriculum. RUPP student in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Photo: Katie Shozi, 2014
  10. 10. This 91 years old community elder sat with the group and told his story (through our translating guide) about his life, the war and life under the Khmer Rouge. What a privilege and unique opportunity it was. Community elder in Koh Padao, Cambodia. Photo: Elspeth Moroni, 2014
