New CDRI Publications

The Cambodian Development Research Institute (CDRI) released three new Working Papers

dealing with economic and development issues in Cambodia.

According to findings in one Working Paper, entitled "Food Security in an Asian

Transitional Economy: The Cambodian Experience", researchers note, not suprisingly,

"rural Cambodians are highly dependent on rice". In a survey of 244 households

undertaken in 1996/97, rice accounts for between 80 and 84 percent of calorie intake

in the three villages surveyed and for between 38 and 50 percent of expenditure on

food.

Two other studies-"Cambodia: The Challenge of Productive Employment Creation"

and "Interdependence in Household Livelihood Strategies in Two Cambodian Villages"-

have also been released.
