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.
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

Projects and Initiatives
The Clearing for Results-Phase II project intends to bring the national body, the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA), to a higher level. It supports the CMAA’s leadership in implementing the National Mine Action Strategy (NMAS), resulting in resources being allocated to national and local development priorities. The resources will also be used in the enactment of policy frameworks that support increased levels of land released to communities for rural development thereby improving access to economic opportunities and growth.more
The Linking Policy and Practice for Accelerating MDG1 (LPP) project aims to support policy dialogue on key priorities of the Royal Government of Cambodia’s Rectangular Strategy and National Strategic Development Plan (NSDP). The project will provide evidence-based policy options for inclusive, equitable and sustainable growth; support human capital development and institutional capacity development in selected sectors such as extractive industries and social protection; and the scaling up of effective anti-poverty practice.more
