Evidence-based Policy Study: Supply and Demand Solutions for Accessibility, and Affordable Childcare Services in Cambodia


Project Description

The World Bank project on “Evidence Based Policy Study: Supply and Demand Solutions for Accessibility and Affordable Childcare Services in Cambodia” examines the interlink between supply and demand for childcare services to analyze the correlation between the supply and demand for daycare centers and employment rates. This is an emerging concern as women make up around 80 precents of the garment sector in Cambodia. When becoming mothers, women tend to leave their children with their parents,  relatives; or leave their jobs respectively. This exacerbates children development in terms of malnutrition, cognitive development, attitudes and education due to the absence of close and attentive care. 


Project Objective

The overall objective of the study is to i) propose practical model of accessible and affordable childcare solutions and investment needs in Cambodia that would support greater women’s employment opportunities and ii) translate these solutions and investment into policy reform options that can be successfully implemented by RGC, private sector and communities. The method of the research will be done through:

  • An in-depth interview in which the interviews will be carried out with selected parents and current caregivers
  • Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with selected parents and/or current caregivers
  • Key informant interviews (KII) with relevant stakeholders, ministries, authorities and actors.
