Children and adolescents are key drivers for the development and economic future of Cambodia. Despite this, children’s participation in policymaking and decisions that impact them has been limited, and entrenched gender norms have prohibited girls’ participation in particular. This is a serious issue for the realization of children’s rights in the country and the progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.
This brief identifies key obstacles to children and adolescent’s participation in Cambodia and presents recommendations to the Royal Government of Cambodia on how to move forward.
