Cause of Poverty in Cambodia

  • Feb 16, 2011

  • Cambodia now stands at the halfway point towards of making a realty goal, but the result uneven. Many years a go Cambodia met the war again and again. A lot of problem in the country such as economic, less education, population, homeless, and so on, all the problem about cause the Cambodia become the third world country. The Cambodian people have experienced in war, conflict and deadly political clashes almost continuously for the past 30 years. There is civil war from 19070-1975, the rule of the Khmer Rouge from 1975-1979, the Vietnamese invasion and occupation from political factions from 1993 to 1998.

    Poverty in Cambodia is characterized by low income and consumption, poor nutritional status, low educational attainment, less access to public services including school and health services, less access to economic opportunities, and economic, social and political processes. The relatively high prevalence of HIV/Aids in Cambodia is an additional challenge to the current human development situation.

    First, Civil war is the root problems that cause lot of people died; many children become orphans; destroy many building and many people become homeless and disable. 

    On the other hand, natural disasters are serious problem that cause farmers move from one place to another place, destroy their property, and also kill their life too. 

    Although the Kingdom of Cambodia is rich in natural resources, decades of war and internal conflict have left it one of the world’s poorest countries. For the social and economic are scars. Many millions of land mines were sowed throughout the country side, where millions still lie, hidden and unexploded. Many Cambodian who live in this areas, and they are an obstacle to agricultural development.  Poor Cambodian is in rural areas. Most of them depend on agriculture for their livelihood, but some of poor people are landless.  Landlessness is one of the causes of a strong goal of internal changing of country that is also driven by the pressures of rapid population growth and the desire to evade from recurring flood and drought in lowland areas. Many people are moving from the more densely populated province in the south and west to the more sparsely populated provinces in the north-east, which include some of the country’s poorest districts.

    The higher population growths contribute to poverty. Because of the Cambodia during the pol pot regime they kill a lot high education that wise it cause the lack education and training skills, people have inadequate employment opportunities and low capabilities. They are insecure, excluded and vulnerable. They have limited access to natural resources. 

    Poor And the end of cause is population growth that populations of poorest countries grow much faster than those of the developed. This is because they are lack of the understanding of the important of birth control or they are unwilling to practice birth control. Too much population growth creates dependency ratio-that is, the percentage of the population that is not of working age. In other words, it will be a big burden for every family to support their members.

    Finally; the cause of poverty are wars that happen again and again, low education, economic, inflation homelessness and less investment. I think the main solution to these problems about is political stability. When the political is in stability, it can attract investors in Cambodia. Therefore, it also brings knowledge and skill to Cambodian people.
    The cycle of poverty, ill health and high health care expenditure cripples poor Cambodian families economically. Until 1993 elections did not manage to bring the former non communist resistance armies in to a single unified force with the Phnom Penh military against the Khmer Rouge, but the elections neither stop the fighting, nor did they change fundamentally Cambodia’s political structure. Tens of thousands are fleeing their homes, and the civilian population is suffering abuses from both sides. While Cambodia is developing some social institutions that can check human rights abuses, such as an independent press, a lively domestic human rights community, and a body of independent and critical parliamentarians, these features are under threat as the political situation deteriorates.

          Second we talk about low educational attainment that is part of poverty. Education in Cambodia is one of the worst in the world because we don’t have enough teacher, school, some school is far away from their house, and other wise some family is poor let their children go to work out side the house for their living that mad children cannot go to school, and poverty remains with the children of the poor to take time off from work for their education. Cambodia had get low of education because lost lot of scholar by the war. 

                Third, based on the data compiled by WHO showed that Cambodian public health is among the worst in the world. The mortality rate of children under five was 138 per 1,000 live births in the year 2003, a lot higher than the rate in East Asia region which is 40 per 1,000 live births1.The primary causes of death for the general population are malaria, acute respiratory infection, tuberculosis, diarrhea and dengue fever. HIV/AIDS is also a main factor that contributes to low life expectancy among Cambodian citizens. Life expectancy at birth is estimated at only 57 years, about 13 years less than the life expectancy average in the region2. Since the majority of Cambodian people are destitute, they are not able to access to private healthcare frequently. Therefore, they must depend on the public healthcare, but the public health service is very limited. 

                Fourth of cause is saving and investment because Cambodian people are poor, it is hard for them to generate the savings that are needed to investment. Usually, the investment rate of low income countries is lower than that of any other group of countries. This low rate of investment, in turn, contributes to the low rate of economic growth. In other words, Les investment leads to less employment opportunities.

    "Starting anew meant we could position the kitchen right in the center of the house, which would provide the sense of connection the owners wanted," said architect Rex Hohlbein of the kitchen’s revamped concept, as successful furniture shop in Cambodia

    "The kitchen tucks beneath a lowered section of the ceiling, which gives it added intimacy. Having such niches coming off the large volume of the great room creates a hierarchy of spaces. It also provides areas of light and shadow that help accentuate the different spaces within the overall area."
    "Everyone gathers to chat and watch the cook, which is exactly what was envisioned."
