Cambodia like many other Asian countries has seen a spate of rapid development over the last 10 years. This combined with Cambodia's geographical location, available resources, and frequency as well magnitude of disasters makes its population very vulnerable to the impacts of disasters such as floods, droughts, tropical storms and the effect of possible climate change. While emergency aid is the cornerstone of People in Need's (PIN) work worldwide, PIN - Cambodia is working alongside national and local authorities, local NGOs and directly with at risk communities to shape and strengthen their institutional capacity and build concepts of resilience into their daily lives.

In 2011 and again in 2013, Cambodia was hit severe flooding. Over two thirds of the country and millions of people found themselves inundated with water. Hundreds of thousands of families lost their access to livelihoods and many had to take high interest loans to cover their needs.

In both these situations People in Need provided an immediate response and supported longer term recovery activates.  Such activates included providing families with access to clean and safe water, supporting community hygiene campaigns, and strengthening livelihood recovery by providing household grant and needed training. 

Through its ongoing disaster risk reduction programs, PIN focuses on building up a community’s resilience to deal with future disasters.  PIN works directly with national and subnational government counterparts to put in place technical emergency plans for how, when to appropriately respond and how to deal with the possibilities of climate change.  PIN works directly with local communities at the grass roots level, both in rural and urban setting, to build up mitigation measures and alternative livelihoods so as to lessen the effects of future disasters.  In direct partnership with government and private sector mobile providers, PIN is also working to develop a voice based mobile early warning system which will allow all those registered to freely receive vial information before a disaster is to occur.  

In order to implement these vital lifesaving projects PIN is currently supported by the Czech Development Agency, The European Commission (ECHO and DIPECHO), Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade New Zealand (MFAT), UNICEF, and Real Gifts from the people of the Czech Republic.
