Cambodia. Toward a national employment strategy for sustained poverty reduction

The study includes analysis of the labour market, particularly with regard to vulnerable groups, meeting the employment challenges through sectoral policies, and reinforcing the link between poverty reduction through inclusive employment and labour market policies and extension of the social protection floor. To develop the elements of National Employment Policy, the study calls for further in-depth analysis: to identify some benchmark indicators to monitor employment and labour market performances; to review Cambodia’s existing and dynamic comparative advantages; to finding ways of developing and improving livelihoods in the rural areas; to assess the constraints faced in implementing the recent Labour Law; and to further develop active labour market policies and its implementation structure across institutions.
