Better Factories Cambodia programme’s vision is to witness improved lives of workers, their families, communities and competitiveness in the Cambodian garment, footwear and travel goods sector. The programme started operating in Cambodia in 2001 and is a partnership between the International Labour Organization and the International Finance Corporation. As part of the Better Work flagship programme, BFC engages with workers, employers and the Royal Government of Cambodia to achieve improved health and wellbeing of garment workers with knock-on effect on workers' families’ welfare, while at the same time strengthening the national industry via increased productivity in garment factories. With a current coverage of over 650 factories and 650,000 workers, BFC collaborates closely with the industry stakeholders at multiple levels of the supply chain to create sustainable and practical solutions for all. In doing so, the programme aims to improve labour standards in global supply chains, and ensuring that workers' rights and entitlements are protected to help distribute the benefits of trade.

BFC supports enterprises in implementing the ILO core international labour standards and Cambodian labour law; the programme has three factory level services: a) Independent annual assessments of factories; b) enterprise advisory focusing on establishing worker-management committees (social dialogue) and supporting improvements in factories; and c) training services designed to support practical improvements in the factory.

For the programme’s next strategic phase (2023-2027), BFC and its constituents will work towards a sector with strong labour institutions and labour market governance, strong and skilled local factory management and technical specialists, with focus on sustainably improving the persistent non-compliances on occupational safety and health (OSH) and human resources (HR) systems, rigorous application of international labour standards, and towards increased gender equality in the sector.

Importantly, in the new strategic phase, BFC will give technical support in line with the needs outlined in Cambodia’s Garment, Footwear and Travel Goods Sector Development Strategy.
