Managing risk and vulnerability in Cambodia : an assessment and strategy for social protection

This report attempts to provide an analytical and strategic basis for addressing these issues, taking into account changing country needs as well as the social protection activities being undertaken by the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) and its partners. Specifically, this study: (i) takes stock of existing knowledge on risk and vulnerability in Cambodia; (ii) examines coping strategies employed by the poor and vulnerable to deal with risk and dampen the effects of shocks; (iii) reviews existing social protection mechanisms; and (iv) lays out priority areas and a proposed agenda for support by the World Bank and other partners in the social protection sector. This report is comprised of four major components or sections: stocktaking of existing knowledge on risk and vulnerability; examination of coping strategies; review of social protection expenditures and programs; and identification of social protection priorities and implications for future support.
