Policy Hub

Policy is at the heart of what we do. CAPRED advocates for important and sustainable policy reforms from the platform of real, on-the-ground investments.

Cambodia is looking toward a period of global economic transformation. It requires bold, evidence-based policy formulation that thinks outside the economic model of labour and capital accumulation.

The Policy Hub provides technical assistance to key Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) agencies to develop, implement, review and strengthen priority policies and programs on public and private investment. It focuses on linkages with Australian institutions, implementation support and strengthening gender equality, disability and social inclusion (GEDSI) integration in policy making.


Our approach

The Policy Hub aims to support improved policy implementation through inter-related “bottom-up” and “top-down” approaches.

Bottom-up approach

The Policy Hub takes a problem-based approach, working hands-on with line agencies and the private sector. It focuses on key sector-level policy, regulatory and practical issues curbing investment. It identifies and trials approaches to resolve those problems and unlock investment.

This could include co-investment, helping to pilot new business models, services and financing models; brokering partnerships or strengthening public–private dialogue; helping to tackle private sector information or coordination gaps; and boosting public and private sector capacity.

Top-down approach

The Policy Hub provides technical assistance to RGC agencies to move the government’s high-level economic recovery strategy into more detailed policy measures and to support implementation.
