The Research Committee of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs supports a four year (2007-10) PEN based research project with approx. USD 1 mill. This project is commonly called the Danida-PEN project. It uses PEN methods for extensive fieldwork and data collection in Cambodia, Ghana and Burkina Faso. In addition, the project includes support for PEN's central operation at CIFOR. On 13-17th October 2008, project participants got together in the capital of Cambodia to review progress and discuss work plans for the coming year at the Phnom PENh workshop. The first two days of the workshop focused on introducing participants to software useful for data handling and analysis, then followed two days of field work review, and a final day of fleshing out details of work to be done in the coming year.
