Food Security in an Asian Transitional Economy: The Cambodian Experience



This working paper details the results of a study carried out from 1996 to 1997 of 244 households in three villages selected for their contrasting characteristics. One is in a rice surplus area of Prey Veng province; the second, in Kompong Speu province, is in drought-prone area subject to violent fluctuations in rice production; the third, on the banks of the Mekong River in Kandal province, is primarily a fishing village, but with rice and reed production as additional sources of employment and income. The study therefore covers a range of agro-ecological and socio-economic conditions representative of Cambodia.
