Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Dry spell causing power cuts: PM
Prime Minister HE on Saturday said the country is now facing an electricity shortage of about 400 megawatts, leading to power outages, and appealed to people, especially those in the business sector, to understand that this is because of an ongoing dry spell.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 5th River Festival in Kampong Chhnang province, Mr HE said the power cuts are being caused by natural factors, adding that Southeast Asian countries have been facing drought and water shortages since February.

“Climate change is not only affecting Cambodia but the whole region. We need water to produce electricity,” he said. “I urge people not to waste water as we will experience a long dry season which will last until June.”

Mr HE appealed to people to understand that there is a need for power cuts during this period and called on those who have generators to use them in their houses, hotels or workplaces to reduce the usage of electricity.

“A large amount of our electricity is produced through hydropower dams, but now there is a shortage of water so the dams can only generate a small amount of electricity,” he said. “We currently lack 400 megawatts, and we are seeking solutions to tackle this issue.

South-east Asia to suffer intense, more frequent drought without government action: UN and Asean report

Published28 April, 2019
HONG KONG — Drought in South-east Asia may become even more frequent and intense if countries do not take steps to reduce its impact, according to a joint study from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (Escap) and Asean.

“Ready for the Dry Years: Building resilience to drought in South-east Asia”, released on April 19, said the cumulative impact of drought in the region disproportionately affected the poor and heightened inequality, which in turn increased the prospect of violent conflict.

Over the past three decades, droughts have affected more than 66 million people in South-east Asia. One such person is 23-year-old Bonreach Kleng, a volunteer coordinator in Cambodia.

“It’s really hard for us because it’s really hot throughout the year. In some areas of Phnom Penh, there is no water. We live on the third floor so we have to carry water from the ground [floor] to the top,” she said.

“Because of the drought there is no water to produce electricity. The government cannot do anything. They just tell us to buy power banks.”

If governments around the world were really interested in the global warming situation they would have massive programs on tree planting,, especially in areas on the edge of deserts, Australia could be a good example where the planed $ 40 billion to be spent on obsolete war technology ,,,, submarines ,,,,would create the same amount of jobs , jobs, jobs, in tree planting , then re-harvesting those trees . Repeat, Repeat and repeat again.

Meanwhile, while we are thinking about that, let's dig up another extra few million ton of coal and send it to China and India to burn.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

There has been a organization planting trees in Australia. They raise money, plant trees, and publicize how many trees they have planted to raise more money.

However, they dont water the trees, and most of them die. So it is really just a charity for making money for the people involved, not for really making a difference.
