Located in Southeast Asia with land and water access to important markets in Thailand and Vietnam, Cambodia has emerged in recent years from decades of civil strife and economic stagnation to become a developing ASEAN economy. The 2008 Population Census stated total population as 13.4 million with a growth rate of 1.54 per year (FAO). According to the Cambodia Socioeconomic Survey, the poverty rate decreased from 47 percent in 2003 to 30 percent in 2007; the Cambodian government’s Commune Database estimates the 2010 poverty rate at 25.8 percent (WFP and UNICEF).
