The northwest of Cambodia, therefore, not only remains one the most under developed and wholly agrarian based areas in Cambodia (45% of the population were living under the poverty line in 2004, 6% higher than the national average of 39% ), but it also has the special context of a large landless population, and bears many scars of the recent tumultuous history of the country. Many local men were caught up in the conflict, and the fighting has therefore also left many local widows and female-headed families, who face their own particular struggles to survive.
