Annual Results Report 2022 Cambodia
Throughout the year, the United Nations (UN) in Cambodia continued to work in close partnership with the Royal Government of Cambodia, building capacities and providing technical assistance to support the country’s progress towards its national development objectives and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Despite the unprecedented challenges presented concurrently by the COVID-19 pandemic, the food and energy crisis, and global tensions, Cambodia has demonstrated immense resolve and emerged both with lessons learned and strengthened systems to face forthcoming hindrances to its development goals. Together with the Government, the United Nations (UN) in Cambodia has strived to reduce vulnerabilities with the aim to leave no one behind, and to increase sustainability to ensure Cambodia is able to withstand future shocks related to climate change, public health, and other challenges. Although the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have lingered, we have witnessed Cambodia’s remarkable resilience and capacity to rapidly recover. Shifting from the initial emergency phase to the sustained management of COVID-19, in 2022, the UNCT supported the Government to draw on lessons learned from the pandemic to improve preparedness, response, and resilience to future shocks. These lessons learned have been adapted into our joint priorities and planning for the year ahead.
