Companies with inclusive business (IB) models can play a strong role in making economic growth in Cambodia more inclusive and beneficial to poor and low-income people. Inclusive business models provide goods, services, and livelihoods on a commercially viable basis and at scale, to people living at the base of the pyramid. These businesses promote social transformations as they have a large and deep social impact.
Following the request of the Government of Cambodia, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the Inclusive Business Action Network (iBAN) have conducted the present landscape study.
This landscape study includes a market study of current inclusive business models in Cambodia and an assessment of the enabling environment, and provides recommendations for promoting inclusive businesses in Cambodia.
