Cambodia is currently facing a skills shortage, creating a mismatch of skills between industry and the existing and future labor force. Recently, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport published the Education Strategy Plan, which includes increasing spending on education by about 53 million USD. A team of local PEP researchers set out to investigate the impact on the labor market and household welfare of increasing government spending on education. Their findings indicate that increased spending can improve household welfare and household income, particularly for the rural population. Find out more about the research methods, findings and policy recommendations in the following PEP publications:
