The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is a universal call to action to end poverty, protect our planet, and guarantee that no one is left behind, have been adopted by 193 UN Member states in 2015, to which urgent global action among all sectors across the globe is crucial.


Cambodia started this process in late 2015 by reviewing and mapping the global goals and targets to national priorities. All 17 SDGs were selected and one additional goal, related to clearance of land mines and of Explosive Remnants of War (reflecting the national priority of de-mining Cambodia’s territory), was added. This resulted in a final version comprising: 18 Cambodian Sustainable Development Goals (CSDGs), 88 nationally relevant targets, and 148 (global and locally-defined) indicators included 96 as national indicators.







The SDGs highlight the need for improved cooperation between the public and private sectors. The implementation of SDGs at national level creates opportunities for engagement but also challenges to find mutually benefiting synergies. Businesses are seen as catalysts for social and environmental progress. However, the challenge is to shift towards an inclusive and sustainable approach of doing business instead of the traditional philanthropy.


Scope of Talk:

This special forum will be organized by CAMFEBA among its members to:

  1. Highlight the main features of SDGs and CSDGs and why they are relevant for the private sectors;
  2. Inspire with examples of SDGs-related activities implemented by others in the market

Further, the forum aims to answer these key questions:

  1. What does the private sector need to know about CSDGs with particular emphasis on Goal no. 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth?
  2. What are the possible driving actions that the private sectors can integrate the goals into the current business models and into their core business strategies?
  3. Opinion discussion on the possibility that companies may encounter in the integration and how CAMFEBA can follow up in our next year agenda.
