Department(s)

The work of the ILO in Cambodia is structured around the Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP), which provides the basis for the ILO’s contribution to national development priorities in line with Cambodia Sustainable Development Goals (CSDGs) and the national development framework, and reflects the ILO’s commitment to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF).

In Cambodia, under the current UNDAF, the ILO is currently implementing three projects on social protection. Its mandate is to provide policy advisory services and technical assistance to the Royal Government and social partners to advance social protection and promote decent work in Cambodia. Its work is guided by a rights-based approach that stems from internationally agreed standards and principles.

ILO’s social protection activities are implemented in support of the National Social Protection Policy Framework 2016-25, and in close collaboration with key national partners, including the General Secretariat of the National Social Protection Council, National Social Security Fund, other relevant ministries and social partners.
