The Social Policy Research Institute (SPRI Global) is honored to be supporting UNICEF Cambodia and the Ministry of Planning of Cambodia (MoP) in building national capacity to carry out a monetary and multidimensional child poverty and vulnerability analysis.
This research assignment follows SPRI Global’s support of UNICEF Cambodia and Ministry of Planning of Cambodia in producing Cambodia’s 2018 published Child Poverty Report.
The key objectives of the current study are as follows:
- Generate evidence on child poverty and vulnerability to support the MoP’s efforts in measuring and monitoring progress of Cambodia’s SDG and National Strategic Development Plan (NSDP) 2019-2023 indicators relating to child poverty and vulnerability. Both monetary and multidimensional measures are to be applied. The analysis will include trend analyses following up on the 2018 baseline analysis.
- Build and strengthen capacity of the National Poverty Measurement Working Group in the area of child poverty and vulnerability measurement, using both monetary and multi-dimensional measures, including UNICEF’s Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) approach.
The products of this assignment will serve to inform decision makers on priority areas and pathways for reducing childhood vulnerabilities, and promote improved access to basic services, social benefits, through an equity-focused, life-cycle sensitive, and gender-sensitive lens.
This assignment follows in line with SPRI Global’s expertise in carrying out multidimensional child poverty, deprivation, and equity analyses in support of UNICEF country offices around the world. To date, SPRI Global has carried out studies in this nature in over 60 countries worldwide. Visit our portfolio page to learn more about our research on child poverty and vulnerability.
