The Rapid Market and Supply Chain Assessment (RMA) intends to generate evidence on the construction market system in Cambodia. The research will borrow from the methodology employed to carry out value chain research and analysis with a particular focus on improving social conditions, including OSH and social protection.
As a labour-intensive industry, construction has traditionally provided an important entry point into the labour market for landless and unskilled workers. However, the construction sector is much more prone to industrial accidents and injuries, and its workers are amongst the most vulnerable to ill health and poverty in case of maternity, disease, unemployment, disability, or old age, for lack of any form of social protection. In particular, the construction sector is associated with a disproportionately high share of serious work-related accidents and fatalities,
Consequently, the construction sector has been identified by the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MoLVT) as a priority sector for this intervention.
