Appropriate Wage Rate and Estimate of Labour Availability for a public works based on Safety Nets in Cambodia
Employment generating public works (EGPW) are an important part of Royal Government of Cambodia’s (RGC’s) strategy being developed through Council for Agriculture and Rural Development (CARD) to develop a comprehensive social safety net (SSN) to provide a measure of protection from shocks for the poor and vulnerable and to contribute to poverty alleviation through short-term unskilled employment.
The national forum on Social Safety Nets held in July of 2009 recognised the need for a public works component of the SSN. A working group on such a programme in the forum concluded that “the programme should be perceived not only as short-term rural infrastructure development but also as the contribution to the growth of other related sectors (e.g. agriculture, health, education)” This is important in the context of the experience with public works programmes elsewhere in the world.
