ACCESS Programme publishes two studies exploring the role of social protection systems in empowering people with disabilities in Cambodia News

Globally, studies estimate that households with a member with disability require between 8 and 58 percent of additional income to reach the same standard of living as a similar household without a member with disability. In Cambodia, this is estimated to be 18.6 per cent.

The Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS) programme, funded by the Government of Australia, through DFAT, commissioned developed two products on disability inclusive social protection in Cambodia, in collaboration with Development Pathways.

The first is a report titled “Social Protection – A situational analysis of persons with disabilities in Cambodia”, which is a product of a broader study on the situation of persons with disabilities in Cambodia and the role of social protection in enhancing their wellbeing.

The second is a brochure titled “Their words: Empowering Cambodians with disabilities through social protection”, that describes the experiences and perspectives of persons with disabilities in Cambodia.
