ABOUT OXFAM

 

Oxfam is a global movement of people who are fighting inequality to end poverty and injustice. Oxfam is an international confederation of 21 affiliates operating together in 85 countries. We have a vision of a just and sustainable world. A world where people and the planet are at the center of our economy. Where women and girls live free from violence and discrimination. Where the climate crisis is contained. And where governance systems are inclusive and allow for those in power to be held to account.

 

OXFAM SOCIAL PROTECTION PORTFOLIO

INCLUSIVE SOCIAL PROTECTION SYSTEMS are critical to achieving gender equality and poverty reduction effort in Cambodia. The Royal Government of Cambodia has recently initiated several social protection schemes, National Social Security in particular, which greatly benefit apparel industry employees. Through this scheme, NSSF reported that in 2020 alone a total of 80,000 female garment workers received maternity allowances from the government which accounted for USD$7.9 million.

The National Social Protection Council also reported that approximately 300,000 female workers both in formal and informal sectors, who have given birth in the past four years, between January 2018 to March 2022 benefited from cash support which accounts for US$30.1 million. And at the peak of COVID-19 pandemic in Cambodia, workers who were laid-off also received support in the forms of cash-based transfer programmes. And a total of at least 560,000 households with an IDPoor card benefited from this scheme in 2020 alone.

Oxfam is now jointly implementing several social protection initiatives such as:

  • 1) Inclusive National Social Protection Initiatives that Respond to the Needs of Apparel Industry Employees” (INSPIRE), a three-year project funded by the Laudes Foundation,
  • 2) Improving Synergies between Social Protection and Public Finance Management (SP&PFM), funded by the European Commission,
  • 3) Fostering an Inclusive and Shock-Responsive Social Protection System in Cambodia (FIRST), funded by the European Commission; and,
  • 4) Improving Social Protection and Labour Rights for women workers in ASEAN’s Agri-Food Sector, a new 5-year DGD (Belgium Government) supported programme.

Oxfam and partners organisations have long been working with the Royal Government of Cambodia, through the National Social Protection Council (NSPC) and the National Social Security Fund (NSSF), to build and enhance inclusive social protection systems for all. The intervention of these initiatives is expected to help Cambodia getting closer to achieving Sustainable Development Goals such as no poverty, good health and well-being, gender equality, etc., decent work and economic growth. 

 

PURPOSE OF THIS CONSULTANCY SERVICE

Oxfam in Cambodia has long been working with and supporting partner organisations, including the new established SP4ALL coalition, in terms of financial resource and technical aspect to influence the policy outcomes and better represent their Constituents to policy dialogue concerning social protection.
