The UN Joint Programme (UNJP) on Supporting the National Social Protection Policy Framework in Cambodia (NSPPF), or in short Social Protection Floor in Cambodia, is a programme which aims to ensure more people are covered by a more effective, efficient, accountable, equitable, sustainable, and child- and gender-sensitive Social Protection system.
By 2022, the JP will have enabled government institutions in Cambodia to be better equipped to ensure policy coherence and provide oversight over social protection policies. Social protection benefits’ scope and coverage will be extended to uncovered groups through the roll-out of the Family Package of integrated social assistance programmes, including a new cash transfer programme benefitting 200,000 pregnant women and children (aged 0-2). Around 8,000 provincial, district and commune level officers will be trained to ensure the proper and efficient delivery of the cash transfer programme through a digitalized delivery system focusing on enrolment, payments and M&E. In addition, 1.5 million people will also be covered by the new pension schemes with better service delivery through digitalisation such as online registrations, e-payments and more efficient monitoring and evaluation.
With the International Labour Organization (ILO) as the lead agency, these activities are jointly carried out by UNICEF and WHO, under the guidance of the United Nations in Cambodia. This programme is made possible through the financial support from the UN SDG Fund.
