Cambodia: Country Operations Business Plan (2018-2020)

Institutional Document | August 2017

The country operations business plan (COBP), 2018–2020 is in line with the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2014–2018 and the priorities reflected in the Rectangular Strategy Phase III, National Strategic Development Plan 2014–2018, and the Industrial Development Policy 2015–2025.  

The CPS builds on two strategic pillars (deepened rural-urban-regional linkages and targeted human and social development) and a facilitating crosscutting pillar (enhanced public sector management). Under the first strategic pillar, the COBP targets (i) improvement of livelihoods and employment in rural areas, (ii) investments in national, provincial, and rural roads, and (iii) climate-resilient infrastructure in provincial and border towns. Under the second strategic pillar, the COBP targets improved access, quality, and management of upper secondary education and addressing the skills gap. Under the third facilitating pillar, the COBP targets support for implementation of the government public financial management and decentralization reform programs.
