In order to maximize the available ODA grants, UNDP will continue its support for the Busan development effectiveness agenda, by respecting ownership and alignment to the national development plans, refining results-based management, transparency and accountability, and strengthening national institutions.
To access non-traditional development assistance, UNDP will help build Cambodia’s capacity to access, manage and monitor climate change financing. UNDP will actively explore opportunities for trilateral and south-south collaboration across the country programme priorities. With other development partners, UNDP will support Cambodia’s efforts to expand its fiscal space, in light of the demographic dividend. Given the transition to MIC and LDC graduation, building on its role in promoting development effectiveness, UNDP will work with the Council for the Development of Cambodia, which oversees and coordinates ODA grants, FDI, and the public investment requirements of the industrial development policy, with other ministries. Given UNDP’s role in promoting the MDGs, UNDP will collaborate with the relevant ministries responsible for national planning and statistics for the translation of the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into the country context. UNDP will also collaborate with UNICEF, UNFPA and other UN agencies to explore how the UN could assist in strengthening the national statistical system in light of the Post-2015 commitments.
