Agriculture is a critical component of the Cambodian economy but agricultural production is frequently disrupted by flood and drought, which are likely to worsen due to climate change. This chapter provides an overview of the broad impact of climate change on Cambodia and, more specifically, the occurrence of flood and drought and their impact on paddy rice production in Cambodia. It then discusses current adaptation practices and policy interventions in the context of climate change by the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC).
