The Government is currently implementing the second National Disability Strategic Plan (NDSP2) 2019–2023, aimed at empowering and ensuring the inclusion of persons with disabilities. During its inception phase, the government reviewed lessons learned from the previous National Disability Strategic Plan, including the lack of leveraging public financial mechanisms and awareness around disability inclusion in cross-cutting thematic programmes and policy solutions. The NDSP2 is recognized by the country as a roadmap to advance the rights of persons with disabilities and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Cambodia has an opportunity to address the gaps and missing links in line with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the UN framework for the immediate socio-economic response to COVID-19 (UN Cambodia SERF). The COVID-19 response measures by UNCT would enable and highlight the importance of disability inclusion to address existing challenges as well as advocate for ‘building back better’ in line with the 2030 Agenda.
Building on evidence-based analysis of COVID-19 on persons with disabilities and the national recovery plan, the UN will advance risk-mitigation and early warning mechanisms to protect the most marginalized groups of persons with disabilities. The UNCT will promote disability inclusive sustainable development that contributes to recovering better, increase engagement with organization of persons with disabilities (OPDs) across thematic areas of UN programmes and ensure strengthened governmental commitment.
The UNCT submitted the Expression of Interest (EOI) for the UN Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD) round 4 in September 2020, and it was accepted to work on the full project proposal early this year. Given that the full proposal must be developed based on the recommendations and key findings of the Situation Analysis of COVID-19 and Recovery Plan in consultation with relevant key stakeholders including OPDs, government’s relevant ministries, UN agencies and CSOs to ensure the proposal is well designed, developed and met the emerging issues in Cambodia of particular relevant to disabilities, and the rights of the persons with disabilities.
