UNDP is launching a new and exciting 2-year Graduate Programme that will equip outstanding young graduates with the skills and experience required to kick-start their career in international development, and accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), build better futures and make a positive difference in the world!
How can we use spatial data to identify critical areas where nature-based actions can address national biodiversity, climate and sustainable development priorities? In this second international virtual consultation, policy makers and spatial data experts from Cambodia will work with an international team to explore the science behind mapping Essential Life Support Areas (ELSAs) mapping and co-create the final ELSA map for the country
In Cambodia, the shrinking economy, hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, has affected all population groups, but particularly the most vulnerable. A first-of-its-kind government scheme, managed with digital tools supplied by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), is ensuring that the poorest receive a level of social protection.
While there has not yet been a substantial outbreak of COVID-19 in Cambodia, the impact of the global pandemic on Cambodia’s economy has been drastic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to over 85,000 cases and more than 1,683 deaths in Cambodia. It has also taken a significant toll on Cambodia’s population and economy with economic growth turning negative at -3.1% in 2020 and human development set back by more than four years sending many communities back into poverty.
When COVID-19 hit the country in February 2020, UNDP Accelerator Labs in Cambodia in collaboration with the country Economic Team rolled out tracking surveys to assess the current and future socioeconomic impacts of the pandemic on 1,400 informal workers (48% female) and 500 Micro, Small and Medium enterprises (MSMEs) across the country.
UNDP is walking the talk! As some of you may know, UNDP offices are partly powered by solar energy, and we’re looking into the option to extend the excess to our neighborhood. We have renewed our transport fleet and added electrical motorcycles and cars powered by our rooftop solar panels for cleaner mobility.
