Higher Education Improvement Project (HEIP) Environment and Social Management Framework

Realizing education’s potential to spur growth is a priority for Cambodia. The country’s National Socio-EconomicDevelopment Plan (2014-2018) and Industrial Development Policy (2015-2025) call for creating a competitive economythrough knowledge and innovation. Strong export performance has been sustained with manufacturing exports growingabout 16 percent p.a. in real terms over the 2000-2014 period. This success has been built largely on the expansion ofrelatively low-technology, low wage/skill production in such industries as textiles, apparel, and basic electronics, andsustained by a steady flow of foreign investment.
