About the entity

UN-Water coordinates the efforts of UN entities and international organizations working on water and sanitation issues.

For farmers in rural Cambodia, knowing in advance that a storm is coming or flooding is predicted could be the difference in saving their livelihoods if not their very lives.

Working with the Government of Cambodia’s National Committee for Disaster Management, the World Food Programme (WFP) launched the Platforms for Real-time Information SysteMs (PRISM) initiative in 2015. PRISM is a hub of information on Cambodia, using an interactive online map to pool data from government ministries and vulnerable people.
