Drought has destroyed over 40,000ha of rice crops in the Cambodian provinces of Battambang, Banteay Meanchey and other provinces while water sources across the country continued to dry up.

Advisor of the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM) Keo Vy said it will be difficult to pump enough water to affected areas. The hardest-hit provinces are Battambang, Banteay Meanchey and Kampong Thom.
