Action Against Hunger has served vulnerable populations in Cambodia from 1988 to 2007 to improve their access to a sufficient quantity of affordable and nutritious food, safe drinking water and improved latrines, and to reduce the damage caused by natural hazards. When our teams left Cambodia, the trends for the country’s malnutrition rates were decreasing and the humanitarian situation had stabilized. Seven years later, Cambodia is still one of the poorest and least developed countries in Southeast Asia. Rates of malnutrition and waterborne diseases are on the rise, and rural populations face mounting agricultural challenges made worse by deforestation, natural disasters and climate change.
Therefore, ACF’s dedicated team is re-establishing programs in Cambodia through a holistic approach along with the support of an enabling environment, including policies and working closely with the national government, other non-profit partners, and communities in Cambodia to address malnutrition.
Problematic and stakes :
Although much economic and social progress has been made in the last 20 years in Cambodia, it should not detract attention from the alarming nutritional situation. Cambodia is among the 40 worst countries globally for acute malnutrition in children, and malnutrition accounts for 1/3 of child deaths. Children and women’s undernutrition has serious long-term and adverse health, social, and economic consequences for the Cambodian population.
