Executive Summary

Severe flooding of the Mekong and Tonle Sap river basins and flash floods have affected 18 out of 24 provinces of Cambodia in the worst floods since 2000.

The National Committee for Disaster Management of the Royal Government of Cambodia estimates that more than 331,000 households (1.5 million people) have been affected and that 46,500 households have been displaced. The floods have damaged 3,800 km of roads, 1,200 schools, and 110 health centres. The impact on agriculture is also of great concern as 9 percent of rice-planted areas are damaged. 1
