Wat-Health - Eau et risques sanitaires au Cambodge

This operational research and training project consists, through field investigations coupled with dedicated analyses, in identifying and defining the exposure and vulnerability of rural populations to flood-related health risks, in order to anticipate appropriate responses to protection issues.

This objective is complemented by a willingness to strengthen Cambodian research capacities and existing partnerships, particularly through the provision of methodological tools, equipment and new analytical skills, as well as new interdisciplinary approaches around multiple interrelated themes, namely hydrological dynamics, land use, bacterial and vector ecology, public health, agricultural practices and health risk modeling.
