Upgrade Value Chains

In line with Outcomes 1 and 7 of the UNDP Strategic Plan, UNDP will work with the government to foster a policy environment that encourages the Cambodian economy to follow a sustainable and inclusive growth path to help the country move up global and regional value chains, upgrade the skills of the young workforce, and invest in backward linkages.

Our Goals

To help build pathways out of poverty, UNDP will support public action to capture the gains from global value chains and to adapt to the changing development finance landscape. To expand the scope for public action, UNDP will focus assistance on the public institutions for poverty reduction and resilience and on strengthening voice and participation. more
