Remarks by USAID Deputy Mission Director, Sean Callahan, TPO Project Launch
March 30, 2017

Current estimates indicate that 14.2 percent of Cambodian adults 35 years old and older suffer from some form of post-traumatic stress disorder – a figure nearly six times higher than that of the United States. It is estimated that intergenerational trauma - that is trauma passed on from parents to children - is rampant. Cambodians 35 and younger– most of who are too young to have remembered the Khmer Rouge – also suffer from abnormally high rates of PTSD.

Remarks by Sean Callahan, Acting Mission Director, USAID Cambodia, Cambodia Solar Workshop
March 9, 2017

The solar power industry in Cambodia is at a nascent stage, but it has a very bright future. This workshop will demonstrate that solar energy is already economically viable in Cambodia and can boost the supply of energy during the dry season.  We are here today to build the foundation that will help solar power become a significant contributor to Cambodia’s energy security. This workshop will also review the technology needed to connect solar energy into Cambodia’s grid. It will look at the technological options and cost for various types of solar energy Photovoltaic, otherwise known as “PV.” Finally, this workshop will help us promote clean energy investment in Cambodia.
