Detail of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Communication Consultant Recruitment:
Background Over the past two decades Cambodia has made impressive progresses in terms of poverty reduction and human development. Economic growth, unmatched by any post conflict society, is pro-poor leading to substantial reduction in poverty. Factors contributing to this fast economic growth among others include: restoration of peace and security, large public and private capital inflows, open market, and fairly stable macroeconomic conditions. As a result, Cambodia has registered massive gains and improvements on human development as measured by the global human development indices (HDI): life expectancy at birth, educational attainments and decent living standards. Between 1980 and 2012, Cambodia’s life expectancy at birth increased by 24.9 years, from 38.7 to 63.6, mean years of schooling and expected years of schooling increased by 0.8 and 4.0 years, from 5.0 to 5.8 and 6.5 to 10.5, respectively. Between 1995 and 2012, Cambodia’s Gross National Income (GNI) per capita increased by some 163 percent, from $797 to $2,095 (2005 PPP$). Overall, Cambodia’s HDI for the period between 1995 and 2012 experienced fast growth in the three HDI dimensions at an annual average growth rate of about 1.7 percent, an average HDI growth faster than the Low and Medium HDI groups. As a result, Cambodia is among the countries in the South that have had greater gains in HDI between the periods from 1990 to 2012. Despite all the progresses and improvements, Cambodia’s educational attainment and human capital base are by all means low including compared to the countries in East Asia and the Pacific. That said, Cambodia is at an historic stage in its development, moving away from Low Income Country to Middle Income Country status by 2030. However, growth was and is still mainly taking place in a few urban centers, while the domestic private sector remains agrarian-based with a focus on subsistence farming of rice. The rapid expansion of the urban labor market draws people in low skilled jobs and low pay – often at the expense of continued education and training – and conceals deep underlying structural problems in education and skills formation. Against this backdrop the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is in the process of writing of the Cambodian Human Development Report (CHDR) 2015: Towards Balanced Growth in Cambodia – Role of Human Capital Development. The CHDR 2015 will take stock of the past and present state of human development, human capital (education and health) base, and demographic window of opportunity for equitable growth and social development to elicit debates on human development gaps and human capital formation for the betterment of citizens of the country. The timing of the 2015 CHDR is critical for Cambodia in that the Report will stimulate policy debate on long-term solution to Cambodia’s sustainable human development and human capital needs; and needs that until now have been met with short-term solutions. Adopting a lifecycle perspective to human capital accumulation by investing in the first 1,000 days of a child’s life provides one important part of such a long-term solution. Ensuring that a child receives care during this time will enable him/her to benefit from education and gives him/her the capabilities to continually adapt to changes in the job market. UNDP Cambodia is looking for a communication consultancy services to take lead and facilitate the preparation for the launching of the CHDR 2015 including the production of advocacy and communication plan, press materials, marketing and dissemination of the CHDR 2015 messages, and preparations of press-kits, speeches, designing and printing report.
