Welcome to CAMFEBA 's Youth Employment and Social Dialogue Project!
Providing employment opportunities to young people and tapping their potential is the key to achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goal (MDG) and contributing to the Rectangular Strategy of the Royal Government of Cambodia. In Cambodia, young people are two to three times more likely than adults to find themselves unemployed. One of the main causes of such youth unemployment is the mismatch between demand and supply of skills in the labour market.

The YEP Project is a joint-initiative between the Cambodian Federation of Employers and Business Associations -CAMFEBA and the ILO’s Bureau for Employers’s Activities (ILO ACT/EMP) under the Pogramme on Social Dialogue funded by the Norwegian Government. The project was launched in Cambodia in June 2007. To ensure that the Social Dialogue plays the strategic role to help coordinate the project to achieve its objectives, the YEP Project set up a Project Advisory Committee, which is a tripartite-plus body, whose members are from the Government, Employers, Trade unions, NGOs, universities, and donor agencies.

The Cambodian young generations to be equipped with the right skills so as they become more productive and capable to enter into the labor market

By promoting the Social Dialogue between the Government, Employers, Trade Unions and all stakeholders, the YEP Project provides youth with access to information relating to job opportunities available to them and the employability skills training to prepare them to get ready for the labor market.

Being a non-profit, non-political project, the YEP Project mainly aims to promote a better Social Dialogue between the Government, Employers , Trade Unions and all relevant stakeholders so as they jointly address the youth unemployment issue in Cambodia by creating decent work and promote income opportunities for youth through matching the supplies to the demands in skills in the labor market. We believe with this approach the youth challenges in getting the decent jobs and the employers’ difficulties in finding human resources with the right skills can be addressed simultaneously.
