Value Chain

Follow a sustainable path

UNDP in Cambodia works with the government to foster a policy environment that encourages the Cambodian economy to follow a sustainable and inclusive growth path. It aims to help the country move up global and regional value chains, upgrade the skills of the young workforce, and invest in backward linkages.

Strengthening voice and participation

To help build pathways out of poverty, UNDP supports 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 focuses assistance on the public institutions for poverty reduction and resilience and on strengthening voice and participation.
