Cambodia: Social protection to end extreme poverty in Cambodia
Chronic Poverty Advisory Network (04.03.2016)
Enhancing social protection is an immediate priority for reaching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Cambodia. One of the major goals of the SDGs is to eliminate extreme poverty by 2030. Cambodia’s historical success in pro-poor growth over the last decade sheds light into several challenges that growth, as defined from an economic perspective, has failed to sufficiently address, including chronic poverty, child poverty, inequality and malnutrition.
