Cambodia - Food Security Atlas, December 2005
“The Food Security Atlas of Cambodia” aims to assess the extent of hunger and poverty in Cambodia. It also examines the causes of poverty and hunger. The
possession of the means of livelihoods, such as land, water, credit, technology, education and skills, are key to eradicating poverty. Furthermore, poor people face hardships if there are no public services and safety nets. These issues are considered in this study under the title of food security. This is not a research document in the strict sense, but largely a compilation of existing information for ready reference. In many ways, the study is a means of dissemination, meant for those who wish to know more about the current food security situation in the country and the areas that need intervention. It also supports the planning of effective action. The Atlas contains a number of maps, thematic, as well as satellite images, which help to visually illustrate conditions at the sub-national level. If the Atlas provokes thought and action by those concerned with food security, its purpose would be served.
