Sopheak Thav, Tae-Kyun Kim


In contributing to explore the level of impacts, the research entitled ―Rural Livelihood Adaptive Capacity to Flood and Drought in Battambang Province, Cambodia” have carried out.  The objectives of the research are 1) to assess the impact of flood and drought on community livelihood; 2) to find out the existing copping mechanism to adapt to flood and drought; and 3) to explore the potentials and opportunities to build community capacity. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches are adopted with 113 sample sizes. Flood and drought was seen to have serious impact to agricultural productions, particularly rice crop, at perceived high level, and the better-off households have higher destructions of main crop due to flood and drought compared to the poor.  . Even though coping strategies for floods were reportedly adopted by most of the households but levels of success were still very limited that need to be improved. Poor access inputs and infrastructures and poor knowledge as well as lack of supportive actions from development agencies were the main constraints.
