Cambodia is in its third decade of peace and economic growth and has made great strides in reducing poverty and improving health. Despite these gains, significant obstacles remain. Democracy and human rights continue to be a challenge, natural resources have been rapidly depleted through illegal logging and poaching, inadequate nutrition has stunted over 30 percent of children and human trafficking persists.
The United States works with Cambodia to build a framework for lasting democracy and to improve the lives of all its citizens.
