Action Plan to Prevent and Respond to Violence Against Children 2017-2021. Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MoWA) and the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY). (2017)

immage

In recent years, Cambodia has made progress in efforts to address violence against children and important steps have been taken to develop core laws, policies, specific strategies and regulatory frameworks for child protection. The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) has taken action in many sectors to address violence, abuse, exploitation, and neglect, as well as including these issues in the National Strategic Development Plan and the National Action Plan on Violence Against Women. Significant challenges remain for the implementation of these structures in the absence of a comprehensive and centralized national child protection system and workforce.
