Globally, developing countries are facing significant threats to water security and quality. Industrialization, economic growth, urbanization, population growth and agricultural production are causing problems for water security, availability and accessibility. In the Asia-Pacific region, nearly 2 billion people have poor and limited access to water and this number is projected to reach 5 billion by 2050. Water pollution has increased, while extreme weather events and disasters caused by climate change are worsening water security and quality situations.

Cambodia has limited access to high water quality and hygiene. Although there has been an improvement in urban areas, most rural areas still have difficulties in water and sanitation access. Sufficient supply of safe water (including drink water) is crucial for rural people and would enable them to adapt to climate change, particularly in the prolonged drought situation that have occurred in Cambodia.
