The Government of Cambodia, with support from UNICEF, is committed to addressing children's environmental health (CEH) issues in order to improve child survival, health, and well-being.

In 2024, as part of UNICEF’s new country programme (2024-2028), UNICEF and Government collaboration on environmental health will be further strengthened, through continued coordination, addressing research/knowledge gaps revealed by the CEH assessment last year and in supporting the development and updating of national regulation and standards pertaining to lead, toxic metals/contaminants and air pollution (identified as a gap in the CEH assessment).
