The Ministry of Tourism, in conjunction with the National Committee for Clean City Evaluation, on Tuesday urged governors in the Kingdom’s 25 cities and provinces to launch an awareness-raising and sanitation campaign in the run-up to the National Clean City Day.
In a letter dated Wednesday, the ministry said the Kingdom will mark the seventh National Clean City Day on February 27, during which the winners of Green Tourism and Best Hospitality awards will be announced. It called on deputy provincial and municipal governors to use all means to promote public participation.
Kep provincial governor Ken Satha said his coastal province has been carrying out the government’s Clean City campaign on a regular basis.
“We have done it on a daily basis, not only when the ministry issues an announcement. This year we will make more efforts in expanding infrastructure in the province . . . we will construct standard roads that have separate lanes for cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. The road will be lined with colourful lights powered by renewable energy,” he said.
He said the efforts resulted in the province receiving an Asean Clean Tourism award from Brunei in 2017.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
Preah Sihanouk provincial deputy governor Phai Bunvannak said the authority is also working to improve infrastructure and restore beaches in the coastal province, which has lately seen rapid encroachment on natural resources.
“We no longer let dirty water flow into the sea. Previously, we had an issue with that. The problem was caused by the construction boom,” he said.

I went to check this outlet on Sokha beach yesterday. When you get close to it, the sea is dark and full of foam, and there is a putrid stench in the air. You can see that the "waste water" continues to run on to Sokha beach where the holiday-makers are swimming. They have no idea. There were babies and small kids playing in the sea about 100m from the outlet.
This is disgraceful. Sokha and Xinhu are both upmarket hotels catering to international tourists, and yet they are pumping waste into the sea where their clients swim. Do they have no shame ? Tourists don't come all the way to Cambodia to swim in sh** and this gives Cambodia a bad name.
So, unfortunately, even if some people say this problem is fixed, that is not so. Tourists and locals are risking their health by swimming in the sea here in Sihanoukville. I applaud the efforts to clean up the beaches, but IMO, so far there are a lot of promises and not enough action.
Of the Brits and former UK residents here, many may recall the ‘keep Britain tidy’ campaign, and especially for the likes of me, the public info films (infomercials I think is the modern term)
An approach that seemed to work well for a while, but Britain is slipping backwards.Wikipedia article wrote:1970s Public information films and high-profile national campaigning, including many popular faces of the day (such as ABBA, The Walt Disney Company, David Cassidy, Marc Bolan and Morecambe and Wise) has a marked impact on attitudes towards littering and awareness of the Keep Britain Tidy brand.
I won’t the kids drop litter randomly, even though their own cousins are left to treat the place like an open dustbin. It won’t be fixed in one generation, but it is possible to start getting people’s attention.
