Over the past recent decade, Cambodia has recognized the significance of SCP and SPP in achieving sustainable development goals. Efforts have been made to establish a legal and policy framework to support sustainable procurement practices. The Ministry of Environment (MoE) and the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) are key responsible ministries for promoting SPP implementation. Capacity building activities and pilot projects in specific sectors (e.g.; ecolabeling) have also been undertaken to sensitize stakeholders on the importance of supply side instrument to promote SCP/SPP in Cambodia along with approved SCP roadmap and a sub-decree. This detailed analysis aims to identify the specific needs and challenges for promoting SPP in Cambodia. Findings will facilitate the development of targeted interventions and support the creation of a national roadmap for SPP.
