The project aims to address pressing needs to create jobs and provide skills development in remittance dependent communities in Siem Reap and Battambang Provinces – targeting returned migrants and vulnerable households – to mitigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many households depend on remittances from their internal or external migrant household members.

While retrenched workers are returning to their homes in rural areas, these communities face additional livelihood challenges such as a lack of potable water, sanitation and drainage, and road connections and irrigation structures in poor condition. This situation is aggravated by cyclical patterns of torrential rain during which villages and infrastructure are inundated by floodwater, causing damage to properties and farmlands as well as essential infrastructure such as water supply, sanitation and access roads. Standing water from poor drainage also leads to unhygienic living conditions and an increase in water-borne diseases.

Improving such infrastructure, as well as climate proofing such assets and facilities, have a long-term impact on living conditions in rural communities. With the introduction of employment-intensive methods in such works, it is possible to increase productive employment and income generation thereby also mitigating recent job losses resulting from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In parallel, the project will be supporting the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MOLVT) to further improve skills and lifelong learning systems. Blended (online and face to face) TVET training will be developed and upgraded in related construction skills and in other sectors in demand by the labour market.
