Decent Work Country Profile - Cambodia

The Decent Work Country Profile for Cambodia seeks to assess progress made towards decent work over the last decade, by analysing in the social and economic context of Cambodia, statistical indicators and legal framework indicators related to ten thematic areas ranging from employment opportunities to social dialogue, working hours to social security. It is designed to aid policymakers and development partners in appropriate policy planning for better mainstreaming decent work into poverty reduction and development policies. Since the early 1990s, Cambodia has pursued wide-ranging economic reforms aimed at facilitating the transition from central planning to a market-based economic system. These reforms, together with improved security and political stability, ushered in a period of unprecedented economic growth that has helped reduce poverty, enhance human development, and strengthen the socio-economic context for decent work.
