Cambodia: “We need timely information” - When floods are normal, warning is critical

In order to address increasing rainfall variability in rural Cambodia, a partnership between United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and People in Need is being extended into the provinces of Kampong Cham, Tboung Khmum, Prey Veng and Svey Rieng. Early Warning System (EWS) 1294 allows Cambodians to be alerted of fast onset emergencies such as flooding by simply registering to the 1294 service using their mobile.
