The Challenges

Urbanization in Cambodia has been largely unplanned and unregulated. With 1.5% population growth at national level and high urban growth rate such as 5% in capital Phnom Penh create many socio- economic, environmental and governance challenges to cities. The situation has led to rising concerns over the current capacity of infrastructure and public service to meet growing political, social and economic demand.

Despite the existence of the Phnom Penh Master Plan 2035, and many other national and sub-national laws, frameworks, and plans, capacity gaps in the cities on managing urbanization has become one of the priority areas for coming years if Cambodia to graduate to middle income level.
