• Guideline for Implementation of the Disaster Data Reporting Forms
    Dec 11, 2014

    Cambodia is prone to natural and human-induced disasters, including flood, drought, typhoon, lightening, river bank erosion, fire and epidemics. As a result of climate change, these disasters have become more frequent, especially in the 21st century, as seen by floods in 2011, drought in 2012, floods in 2013, flood and drought in 2014, as well as violent storms, fire, lightening and epidemics. The impact of these disasters include property damage, loss of human and animal life, loss of livelihoods, crops, infrastructure, and damage to the economy and the environment.

  • Annual Report 2013
    Aug 28, 2014

    Cambodia is well on track to achieve Millennium Development Goals 1, 4, 5 and 6, and poverty rate is set to fall further below 20 percent in 2014. Declines in infant and maternal mortality have already exceeded 2015 targets (CMDG Report, 2013). Despite the anxieties and concerns in the run-up to the election, Cambodia’s economy continued to grow, reaching 7.6 percent growth in 2013 and sustained by garment exports, tourism and construction. With GDP per capita at US$1,036 compared to approximately US$200 in 1992, Cambodia is well on its way to be ranked as a lower middle-income country (MIC) in the near future.

  • Human Development Report 2014
    Jul 24, 2014

    As successive Human Development Reports have shown, most people in most countries have been doing steadily better in human development. Advances in technology, education and incomes hold ever-greater promise for longer, healthier, more secure lives.1 Globalization has on balance produced major human development gains, especially in many countries of the South. But there is also a widespread sense of precariousness in the world today—in livelihoods, in personal security, in the environment and in global politics.2 High achievements on critical aspects of human development, such as health and nutrition, can quickly be undermined by a natural disaster or economic slump.

  • Cambodia Disaster Loss and Damage Analysis Report 1996 - 2013
    Jul 8, 2014

    Cambodia is prone to a number of natural disasters including flood, lightening, drought, fire, storm, epidemics, pest outbreak and river bank collapse. Yet little was known about the impact of disasters at national and sub-national levels due to a lack of systematic organization and collection of information. There was general lack of reliable information about disaster losses and damage in line ministries and the few existing data sets were not well organized in a systematic manner to assist in useful analysis.

  • Cambodia Trade Integration Strategy 2014-2018
    Feb 20, 2014

    Cambodia has been quite successful heretofore in integrating the global economy through trade and investment. Progress since the mid-2000s is significant. But world markets are ever changing with new competitors continuously emerging to challenge Cambodia’s export sectors. The challenge for the country and its leading export sectors is to respond to change by strengthening the competitiveness of established sectors while nurturing new ones.

  • Cambodia climate change strategic plan 2014 – 2023
    Feb 20, 2014

    The complexity and many uncertainties of climate change risks and threats to Cambodia’s economic growth, livelihoods and ecosystem functions point to the need for integrated approaches to planning climate change policy interventions in harmony with a relevant sustainable economic policy agenda geared towards poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. The Cambodia Climate Change Strategic Plan 2014 – 2023 (CCCSP) is well designed to fill the policy gap, complement on-going efforts and meet the emerging challenges of development, environment and climate change issues.

  • Clearing for Results - Annual Report 2013
  • Human Development Report 2013
    Jan 1, 2014

    When developed economies stopped growing during the 2008–2009 financial crisis but developing economies kept on growing, the world took notice. The rise of the South, seen within the developing world as an overdue global rebalancing, has been much commented on since. This discussion has typically focused narrowly on GDP and trade growth in a few large countries. Yet there are broader dynamics at play, involving many more countries and deeper trends, with potentially far-reaching implications for people’s lives, for social equity and for democratic governance at the local and global levels.
