Cambodia remains a young and growing nation; people under the age of 30 represent two-thirds of its population, which continues to grow at around 1.6% per year. Youth also constitute about 43% of the total working-age population. Moreover, Cambodia is undergoing a rapid demographic transition, with birth rates falling, and the proportion of elderly dependents remaining relatively low. This demographic dividend can be used to further boost economic growth and bring about positive social transformation. Whether the country can realize these benefits in the future, however, is dependent on youth’s access to decent and higher value jobs and their ability to start and sustain their enterprises, as well as to successfully respond to rapid technological change driven by the advent of Industry 4.0.
In joining the country effort to address youth employment issue, the Promoting Decent Youth Employment in Cambodia (YEC) project was designed with the aim to support Cambodia to promote and expand decent employment among youth (15-30 years old) and identify and test avenues for youth to maximize returns on their jobs and income opportunities in the context of Industry 4.0. The project focuses on identifying and testing avenues for Cambodian youth, especially the poor and vulnerable, to prepare for the arrival of Industry 4.0 and to maximize their incomes through skills upgrading, improving linkages between job seekers and employers, and promoting youth entrepreneurship.
In line with the above overarching objective, the project specifically implements the following expected deliverables:
