    Description
    The National Social Protection Council (NSPC) of Cambodia has the mandate to develop, supervise and regulate the social protection system and to ensure harmonization of the different strategies, policies and other social protection activities, including for the people with disabilities. To the three activities, deployed at distance, contributed experts from France, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Finland, who first presented international and EU best practices and cases with regards to social protection coverage of people with disabilities. A mapping of the existing policies, measures, initiatives, both from national institutions and development partners was then co-developed, with a view to identifying possible coverage gaps or inconsistencies. The final activity coached NSPC’s staff on building a methodology for developing an action plan for disability-inclusive social protection.

This happened in a phase of passing legislation building the social security system governance in Cambodia, as well as its core rules of functioning. Mobilized experts from Finland and Lithuania accompanied the Partner’s reflection on the role of the NSPC as main regulator and supervisor of the social security system in Cambodia. In that purpose, regulatory texts have been jointly prepared, such as one settling the function of regulation and supervision of social security operator, the code of conduct for staff of the NSCP, the guidelines for policy disclosure, for e-audit and risk management within social security schemes, and investment guidelines. A study-visit to Finland was also implemented in the framework of the Action: the Cambodian delegation has been hosted by the University of Helsinki, the Finnish Pension Alliance, the Finnish Centre of Pensions, the Finance inspection, and the Social Insurance Institution.

The present Action focused on pensions, in the light of the planned reform, which finally came into force in 2022, bringing in the system private sector workers, together with public civil servants. NSPC’s staff have received significant exposure to EU and international cases and practices, particularly on the issue of (sustainably) financing pensions. Relevant international standards were presented by experts from Finland and Lithuania, with a focus on taxation, collection of contributions, the very build-up of a pension system, and its financing.
