Thida Khus: “I share the optimism”, but “the process has been more challenging”

“I share the optimism of the goal of the graduation of at least half of the LDC countries by the next decade,” said Thida Khus, of Cambodian organisation SILAKA, at the United Nations General Assembly interactive hearings with civil society on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), in New York, April 1. But, she added, “the process has been more challenging for us with the global economic and financial crisis and the effect of Global warming, which brought about the run away food price, change in weather, drought, land erosion, and storm‐that we do not have the capacity to deal with.”
