Cambodia Baseline Assessment Report

The Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, launched the program in 2016 on ‘Strengthening Capacity of Government, Local Humanitarian Organizations and the Private Sector on Preparedness for Emergency Response’ in six Asian countries: Cambodia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Under this program, each country has undertaken a Country Specific Baseline Survey to understand the current context and engagement of government entities, the private sector, local NGOs/civil society organizations, international organizations, academia, and the media in emergency response. The country reports would be summarized into a Regional Synthesis Report for the six countries to provide comparisons for the successful implementation of the program.

This Baseline Assessment Report aims to summarize findings on the humanitarian ecosystem in Cambodia to understand important areas for strengthening capacity for a more effective humanitarian response.
