Educating students on single-use plastic reduction and other environmental practices will contribute to a more sustainable future.

UNDP Cambodia announced that they, with support by Embassy of Sweden in Phnom Penh – are committed to making Gender Equality by working closely with the Ministry of Women’s Affairs of Cambodia and partners to eliminate gender inequality and ensuring that all development efforts take into account the experiences, needs and contributions of women as well as men.

It has been supporting Cambodia’s Arbitration Council Foundation (AFC) since 2014 in its work to resolve labour disputes as well as promoting social dialogues to contribute to a sound industrial relation environment in Cambodia.

The Arbitration Council is an independent, national institution with quasi-judicial authority derived from the Labour Law of Cambodia, established in 2003 with the support of the Ministry of Labour, employers and unions. The Arbitration Council is empowered to assist parties in resolving collective labour disputes in Cambodia.

The Arbitration Council Foundation organized a Regular Arbitrators Meeting (RAM) which was conducted at the Himawari Hotel & Apartment in Phnom Penh.

The meeting aimed to discuss and update cases registered at the Arbitration Council, the recent progress of professional relations, and Force Majeure Concept. https://scandasia.com/sweden-supports-cambodia-environmental-awareness-gender-equality/
