There is consensus that good governance is a precondition for development across all sectors in Cambodia. For this reason, our focus is on supporting the Government and civil society to reinforce democratic institutions and strengthen local governance. An important element of our support in this area is promoting women’s involvement decision-making at the national and local levels.
Cambodia’s environment is increasingly under pressure from a number of sources, including rapid development and new concerns such as climate change. UNDP works to strengthen national capacities in environmental management, adaptation to climate change, and access to energy services for the poor.
To accelerate progress towards the Cambodia Millennium Development Goals, UNDP fosters a better understanding of issues related to poverty and strengthens national capacities to take solutions forward. An important part of this work is supporting the Government to manage and target development aid more effectively.
When development efforts fully include the perspectives and participation of women, they have the best possible chance of delivering progress for all. Therefore, in all our work, UNDP promotes the empowerment of women. Support is also provided to strengthen women's political leadership skills and decision-making roles, changing prevailing gender values and perceptions, and improving women's economic empowerment.
