OVERVIEW:

UNICEF, in conjunction with the Royal Government of Cambodia, has entered into a new period of cooperation to build upon the successes of the 2011-2015 Country Programme.

In support of the Government’s National Strategic Development Plan 2014-2018, UNICEF is supporting the
Government to identify and overcome key bottlenecks that impede the realization of children’s rights. The 2016-2018 Country Programme directly contributes to the three United Nations Development Assistance Framework outcomes that focus on sustainable growth and development; sustainable and quality social services and protection; and more transparent and accountable national and sub-national institutions.

INTEGRATED EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT:  

Situation

Early childhood—from conception to under age 6—is a crucial period in a child’s life. This period is a critical time for a child’s brain development and is key for the child’s future social, emotional, cognitive and physical abilities. If a child’s brain fails to receive what it needs in this period of development, it takes tremendous effort, both financial and time, to set it back on track.

INCLUSIVE QUALITY EDUCATION:

Situation

Cambodia is known internationally as a success story of educational reconstruction and transformation following the Khmer Rouge’s rule in the 1970s when much of the country’s education system was destroyed. Significant progress has been made since then with a huge expansion in the availability of schools and children’s access to education.

CHILD PROTECTION:

Situation

All children have the right to be protected. Yet in Cambodia, the situation is dire for many. One in two children have experienced severe beating, one in four children have experienced emotional abuse, and 1 in 20 girls and boys have been sexually assaulted. Many children are trafficked, forced to work, separated from their families or unnecessarily placed in residential care institutions.

SOCIAL INCLUSION AND GOVERNANCE:

Situation

Cambodia has experienced significant economic progress in recent years. Since 2011, the country has
seen average annual growth of 7 per cent in its Gross Domestic Product and is transitioning into middle-income status.

Economic growth has reduced poverty in Cambodia from 47.2 per cent in 2007 to 18.6 per cent in 2012
(World Bank, 2014). However, it has brought with it a host of economic and social disparities and inequities. About 3 million of the total population of 15.3 million Cambodians continue to live in poverty, while another 8.1 million live just above the poverty line; 90 per cent of these people live in rural areas.
