Cambodia Natural Hazards:
Although Cambodia’s natural hazards include the occasional drought, the country experiences monsoonal rains and flooding from June to November.
Cambodia Environmental Issues:
Cambodia’s environmental issues include illegal logging activities and soil erosion, throughout the country. There is strip mining for gems in the western region (along the border with Thailand), which have resulted in habitat loss and declining biodiversity. This has particularly been destructive to the mangrove swamps and threatens the natural fisheries. The fish stocks are declining due to illegal fishing and overfishing. In the rural areas of Cambodia, most of the population does not have access to potable water.
