Environment
Since the end of the Khmer Rouge regime, preservation of the environment has begun to be a bigger focus for the Cambodian government.1-2 Forests in Cambodia are diverse, but are seeing rapid deforestation because of increasing urbanization.1-2 three-fourths of Cambodiaâ's population relies heavily on agricultural cultivation for their livelihood and the increasing need for farmable land has lead to the destruction of natural habitats.3 Additionally, the rivers and marine habitats in Cambodia are deteriorating because of increased logging, salt farming, dynamite fishing, and overfishing.4 A recent increase in economic growth has also resulted in untreated sewage that pollutes surface and groundwater sources.5

Since 2004, garments, construction, agriculture, and tourism have driven Cambodia's growth. GDP climbed more than 6% per year between 2010 and 2012. The garment industry currently employs more about 400,000 people and accounts for about 70% of Cambodia's total exports. In 2005, exploitable oil deposits were found beneath Cambodia's territorial waters, representing a potential revenue stream for the government, if commercial extraction becomes feasible. Mining also is attracting some investor interest and the government has touted opportunities for mining bauxite, gold, iron and gems. The tourism industry has continued to grow rapidly with foreign arrivals exceeding 2 million per year ...See More since 2007 and reaching over 3 million visitors in 2012. Cambodia, nevertheless, remains one of the poorest countries in Asia and long-term economic development remains a daunting challenge, inhibited by endemic corruption, limited educational opportunities, high income inequality, and poor job prospects. Approximately 4 million people live on less than $1.25 per day, and 37% of Cambodian children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition. More than 50% of the population is less than 25 years old. The population lacks education and productive skills, particularly in the impoverished countryside, which also lacks basic infrastructure. The Cambodian Government is working with bilateral and multilateral donors, including the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank and IMF, to address the country's many pressing needs; more than 50% of the government budget comes from donor assistance. The major economic challenge for Cambodia over the next decade will be fashioning an economic environment in which the private sector can create enough jobs to handle Cambodia's demographic imbalance.
