The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP Cambodia Country Office works in partnership with the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC), non-government organizations, civil society organizations, community-based organizations, multilateral aid agencies, bilateral donors and private sector to support the progress towards the Cambodia Sustainable Development Goals (CSDGs) and priorities set in the National Strategic Development Plan 2019-2023.
With the goal to transition to upper middle-income status in 2030, Cambodia has been rapidly modernizing, and its economy continues to transition from agriculture to industry and services. The Government has supported this transition through sound macroeconomic management, increasing foreign direct investment (FDI), high labour force participation, growing domestic resource mobilization and improved public services. This is a time of dynamism and opportunity, but also one of turbulence, dislocation and vulnerability - and these changes bring risks as well as opportunities.
Specific questions can be raised about the quality of the growth process. There are two dimensions to these concerns. The first relates to inclusiveness of the economic model. While there have been large reductions in poverty, a persistent proportion of Cambodians still live in extreme poverty, and a larger proportion of the population are vulnerable to shocks. The second set of issues concern slow structural change, including sluggish efficiency gains. Overall, productivity improvement has been weak, expansion is driven by extensive as opposed to intensive growth, and there has been significant environmental impacts. In addition, more pressing in the near term are the ongoing impacts of the global crisis, COVID-19 and the impact of the war in Ukraine. The global inflation in major commodity market and energy and food crisis are adding pressure on the national economic recovery and stability and are affecting Cambodia’s vulnerable population disproportionately.
UNDP is working to support the RGC on its socio-economic policy agenda and provide capacity building. This Terms of Reference (TOR) refers to a set of assignments to address the above challenges.
