Learning from Seila and CBMS’ experiences, creating the CDIS or adopt CBMS as nationwide CBMS and become an official database in Cambodia now is very appropriate and needed for the currently commune councils to have better knowledge and accurate information for a good local development planning in each locality.
It is, therefore, the government of Cambodia, international donors, and other related agencies must take into account the importance of the database system that can be developed and used for the sake of achieving development goal of communes, districts, provinces/municipalities, and national development.
