  • 2013 HDR Analysis on Cambodia
    May 30, 2013

    Presented in this leaflet is an abstract of the 2013 Human Development Report on Cambodia’s performance on key indices of human development. It is to underscore the progresses in key human development indices and draw attentions to inequalities that potentially restricts and or undo human development progresses achieved over the last two decades or longer. In short, it is a brief account on Cambodia’s HDI/IHDI, Gender Inequality Index (GII), Multi-dimensional Poverty Index (MPI) and concluding remarks based on the 2013 Human Development Report.

  • Cambodian MDG Scorecard 2012
    Nov 30, 2012

    CMDG scorecard report summarizes the achievement results of each province or cities on each Cambodia MDG. The results come from the analysis of information from Commune Data Base (CDB) by turning the information into bar charts, piece charts or other graphics. This is to make it easier for commune or local planners to make use of the data for their development purposes.

  • Human Capital Implications Of Future Economic Growth In Cambodia: Elements of a Suggested Roadmap
    Aug 31, 2011

    The global economic downturn gave everyone pause for thought, not least those countries with economies that relied largely on European and American markets for their exports. The resulting calls for economic diversification have provided an opportunity for countries to reconsider their industrialisation policies and to look at longer term means of sustaining their economic growth. Successful diversification requires commitment and investments in both human capital and infrastructure. Cambodia’s economy grew at an astounding pace through the 1990s. Narrowly concentrated on exports, however, the country was left vulnerable to external shocks. As a result, it became very clear that in the future, resilient growth would be more important than rapid growth.

  • The Global Economic Downturn: Opportunity or Crisis?
    Dec 1, 2009

    Cambodia has not been spared from the pervasive impact of the global economic downturn. Based on information available through September 2009, gross domestic product (GDP) is forecast by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to contract by 1.5 percent and by IMF to contract by 2.75 percent in 2009. This is a drastic shift following double-digit growth throughout most of the last five years. The sharp decline in GDP, in foreign direct investment (FDI) and in export income highlights now more than ever that Cambodia must take a more proactive and deliberate approach to diversifying its economic base and increasing its economic competitiveness. Addressing these priorities will strengthen its economic foundation and reduce Cambodia’s high vulnerability to external shocks.

  • Residential Energy Demand in Rural Cambodia
    May 1, 2008

    The preparatory activities aim to establish a systematic data monitoring system for rural energy and to formulate a full size project to develop rural livelihoods through improved access to sustainable energy services. Access to sustainable energy will be critical for Cambodia to reach the Millennium Development Goals as well as the targets set in the National Strategic Development Plan for the reduction of fuel wood dependency and poverty. To plan an effective intervention for rural energy development, systematic baseline data for monitoring needs to be in place. A rural every balance sheet will capture the demand and supply of rural energy services and can be used as an effective tool to formulate a rural energy development strategy at both national and provincial levels.
