© UNICEF Cambodia/2017

The study on the Impact of Migration on Children in The Capital and Target Provinces, Cambodia, released in September 2017, focuses on areas most affected by domestic and international migration. The areas covered by the study are: Phnom Pen, Siem Reap, Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, and Prey Veng. The report was commissioned by UNICEF and conducted with technical support from the Cambodia National Council for Children (CNCC) General Secretariat.

The study offers understanding of how families, specifically children, are affected by migration. The report assesses the impacts of migration on children in areas of child protection and intra-family relations; evaluates their access to education, healthcare, and other social services; examines existing migration trends; and more. To conclude the report, it recommends potential governmental and non-governmental services that could benefit families affected by migration. 

Through collecting primary data and looking at existing, quantitative data on children who are left behind after their parents migrate for work, as well as children who migrate with their parents, the report provides a more complete understanding of the challenges children face in the migration context.
