Validation Workshop of Cambodia Decent Work Country Profile

The Tripartite Validation Workshop of the Cambodia Decent Work Country Profile took place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia from 1 to 2 March 2012 and was co-organized by the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MOLVT) and the ILO. The workshop was prepared in line with the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008),1 which recommends the establishment of appropriate indicators or statistics -if necessary with assistance from the ILO- to monitor the progress made in the implementation of the ILO Decent Work Agenda. The Decent Work Country Profile for Cambodia is aimed at providing information on all the elements of decent work in the country, analysing statistical and legal indicators within the framework of national labour and social policies, tentatively over the past ten years (depending on data availability). The purpose of the document is to give baseline information on the state of decent work in Cambodia, the progress made in decent work, and highlight the gaps that still remain, in both decent work and its measurement. It is also intended as an advocacy tool for mainstreaming decent work into national policies and development plans, including the National Strategic Development Plan and the Decent Work Country Programme.
