UNIDO National Internship Programme

UNIDO and the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has jointly developed a Programme for Country Partnership (PCP). The PCP is an innovative model for accelerating Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development (ISID), designed as a framework at the country level to bring together actors in a multi-stakeholder platform, to coordinate and optimize their contribution for implementing the country’s strategy. The PCP synchronizes and blends cooperation with various development partners through loan and grant support, as well as local, foreign public and private investment. 

Under the PCP, there are two key intervention areas:

1) Agro Value Chain Development, including linkages to the tourism sector and

2) Industrial Diversification, Innovation and SEZ Development.

These two intervention areas will be supported through five crosscutting dimensions, namely industrial policy and statistics, quality infrastructure, sustainable energy, circular economy, and women empowerment and youth employment.

The PCP through its interventions will support Cambodia’s IDP implementation and foster ISID. The PCP is based on the RGC’s vision to transform and modernize Cambodia’s industrial structure from a labour intensive to a skill-driven industry by 2025, and its objective to achieve sustainable high economic growth through economic diversification, strengthening of competitiveness and promoting productivity. The overall impact of the PCP in supporting the implementation of the IDP will be measured in terms such as of jobs created and/or better qualified workforce, increased income to workers in the respective sectors, reduction of imports(mainly agricultural products consumed in the tourism sector), increased exports, increased local value addition and increased private investment.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is the specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability. The mission of UNIDO, as described in the Lima Declaration adopted at the fifteenth session of the UNIDO General Conference in 2013 as well as the Abu Dhabi Declaration adopted at the eighteenth session of UNIDO General Conference in 2019, is to promote and accelerate inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) in Member States.

The relevance of ISID as an integrated approach to all three pillars of sustainable development is recognized by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will frame United Nations and country efforts towards sustainable development. UNIDO’s mandate is fully recognized in SDG-9, which calls to “Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”. The relevance of ISID, however, applies in greater or lesser extent to all SDGs. Accordingly, the Organization’s programmatic focus is structured in four strategic priorities: Creating shared prosperity; Advancing economic competitiveness; Safeguarding the environment; and Strengthening knowledge and institutions.
