Title:

Mapping Vulnerability To Natural Disasters In Cambodia

Abstract:

The report presents the main findings of the first ever attempt to identify priority areas prone to floods and droughts at the commune level in Cambodia. It clearly identifies various factors contributing to vulnerability of rural populations as a result of these natural disasters. In particular, the analysis focuses on three elements: food security, rice dependency, and the nature of the disaster. The combination of existing relevant information and data from surveys, assessments, geographic information systems (GIS), and satellite images, has enabled us to better identify and understand which communes are especially prone to natural disasters.
