Trends in Cambodia

Cambodia is a country with diverse terrestrial, freshwater and marine habitats supporting a great variety of species, many of which are endangered and threatened regionally or globally.

Remaining forest habitats, such as the dry dipterocarp forests in the north, are among the largest remaining expanses of this forest type left in the region and the wetlands within them provide habitat for a diversity of large water birds and mammals. Globally important species including tigers, clouded leopards, elephants, banteng (a type of wild cattle), sarus cranes, Siamese crocodiles and many more still inhabit the wilds of Cambodia. Likewise, the Mekong River and associated systems including the Tonle Sap (Great Lake) contain an abundance of fish and other aquatic species that provide an important food source for most Cambodians.

Coastal systems of Cambodia are also diverse, including coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds and other biodiverse ecosystems.

Cambodia Agriculture Trends

Agriculture is the key sector in the economy in Cambodia. Arable land amounted to 3,807,000 hectares (9,007,000 acres) in 1998, or 22% of the total land area. In 2001, agriculture accounted for 50% of GDP and engaged 80% of the economically active population.

Cambodia Industry Trends

Industrial activity has traditionally centered on the processing of agricultural and forestry products and on the small-scale manufacture of consumer goods. Rice milling has been the main food-processing industry. Industrial expansion came to a virtual halt in 1970 with the outbreak of war. A few sectors (such as textiles and beverages) enjoyed a short wartime boom due to military orders, but losses in territory and transport disruptions had caused a rapid decline in activity by 1973. The Pol Pot government placed all industries under state control in 1975. In the course of the next four years, some 100 industries were abolished or destroyed. When the PRK took over in 1979, industrial plants began to reopen. By late 1985 there were a reported 60 factories in the state sector producing household goods, textiles, soft drinks, pharmaceutical products, and other light consumer goods. Most plants operate below capacity because of poor management and shortages of electricity, raw materials, and spare parts. There is little information on the small Cambodian private sector. The overall value of local and handicrafts industries in 1984 was estimated at about 50% of the output value in state industry.

Cambodian Lifestyle

For many older Cambodians, life is centred on family, faith and food, a timeless existence that has stayed the same for centuries. Family is more than the nuclear family we now know in the West - it’s the extended family of third cousins and obscure aunts (as long as there is a bloodline there is a bond). Families stick together, solve problems collectively, listen to the wisdom of the elders and pool resources. The extended family comes together during times of trouble or times of joy, celebrating festivals and successes, mourning deaths or disappointments. Whether the Cambodian house is big or small one thing is certain: there will be a lot of people living inside.

For the majority of the population still living in the countryside, these constants carry on as they have: several generations sharing the same roof, the same rice and the same religion. But during the dark decades of the 1970s and 1980s, this routine was ripped apart by war and ideology, as the peasants were dragged from all they held dear to fight a bloody civil war and later forced into slavery. Angkor, the Khmer Rouge organization, took over as the moral and social beacon in the lives of the people and families were forced apart, children turned against parents, brothers against sister. The bond of trust was broken and is only slowly being rebuilt today.

Cambodian Simple Traditional Lifestyle

Cambodian lifestyles are unique traditional and simple with the countryside’s forest being naturally preserved and the city life being modernize on a daily basis.

People in the countryside would enjoy simple meal like rice, fish, and meat. As for the city people, almost every food dish (Thai,Chinese,India,Western) is here in Cambodia.

The people dance, laugh and sing during the holidays and are always wearing a welcoming smile to the world.
