Cambodia has experienced rapid economic growth in recent years. Half the workforce is employed in the agricultural sector, and most of these workers are women. However, responsible business practices, including those focusing on gender, are not widespread and the country’s regulatory framework is weak.

To address this, the Gender Transformative and Responsible Agribusiness Investments in South East Asia (GRAISEA) programme – together with Oxfam in Cambodia – and a variety of companies and civil society organizations, set up the CSR Platform Cambodia in order to facilitate the sharing of resources and best practices that can help businesses become more socially responsible.
