This report was undertaken in the wake
of the Ketsana Disaster, to assess damage, losses, and
resource requirements for recovery. Typhoon Ketsana hit
Cambodia between September 29 and October 5, 2009. Fourteen
out of 24 provinces were affected by the storm and
subsequent flash floods. The report addresses macro-economic
impacts, livelihood and social impacts, disaster risk
management requirements, and recovery and reconstruction
requirements. The report concludes that the process of data
collection and management for assessing damages and losses
as well as tracking emergency assistance has to be improved,
along with capacity building activities for both the line
ministries and national and sub-national Committees for
Disaster Relief to facilitate their participation in the
recovery process.
