UNDP provides 1,700 tablet computers to Cambodia for social protection improvement

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has provided 1,700 tablet computers to Cambodia’s Ministry of Planning, along with a bundle of software, aiming at improving the country’s social protection system, said a joint press statement on Wednesday.

The computers will enable the provincial departments of planning and communes to register new IDPoor recipients faster, so they can receive rapid cash transfers sooner.

Social protection is one of the four main areas in the next phase of UNDP’s COVID-19 crisis response, the statement said, adding that it is designed to support the most marginalized peoples, so they can access food, pay for shelter, and enable them to seek stable livelihoods.
