Position: Request For Proposals: Assessment of compatibility of Cambodian national legislation with the Social Security (Minimum Standards) Convention, 1952 (No. 102) in view of a possible ratification (International Labour Organisation)__Deadline:31-May

Cambodia has an ambitious plan of accelerating economic growth over the coming decades. In addition to the pursuit of growth, meeting the growing aspirations of the population requires policies aimed at ensuring social protection across lifecycle contingencies. Aware of these challenges, the Government has placed Social Protection at the core of its priorities. The launch of the National Social Protection Policy Framework (2016-2025) was a milestone and illustrated the importance placed on social protection, which for the first time combines social security (including social health insurance) and social assistance under one single strategy.

The ILO is supporting the development of the social protection system in Cambodia through analysis, evidenced based policy and financial decision making, capacity building work and knowledge transfer. As part of this work, the ILO is providing technical cooperation in carrying out a full actuarial valuation of contributory schemes operated by National Social Security Fund of MLVT as a key element to ensure that policy and financing decisions are evidence based. The ILO actuarial valuation report are normally accompanied by an assessment of the existing provision against the ILO Social Security Convention No.102. Although the actuarial valuation covers only contributory schemes, the C102 assessment will cover both contributary and non-contributary social protection programmes.

Convention No.102 constitutes an internationally recognized and monitored safeguard that serves to guarantee that social protection benefits align to internationally agreed minimum levels. The assessment of the achievements of the Cambodian social protection schemes against the principles and standards of Convention No.102 can contribute identifying areas of intervention for ensuring adequate basic levels of income security and access to basic services, as well as setting an environment conducive to political and social stability and creating an environment attractive to business and international investments.
