Minimum Expenditure Basket and Household Expenditure Gap in Cambodia (2020)
Understanding economic access to essential needs and how this might be affected during climatic, health and economic shocks is critical to ensuring that vulnerable groups can lead a healthy and productive life. This technical report analyses the cost of essential needs in Cambodia by developing a Minimum Expenditure Basket (MEB) and calculating the expenditure gap of households most vulnerable to shocks, based on Cambodia Socio-Economic Survey (CSES) and WFP market price monitoring data.
