This article focuses on international donors who have warned that they may cut aid to Cambodia next year unless more progress is made in reducing corruption. Cambodia cannot afford to lose the support of the donor community, whose funds account for around half of the government's total budget. International donors have pledged $504mn in aid to Cambodia for 2005, while threatening they could reduce the amount for next year unless more progress is made in reducing corruption. Although the amount is less than the $1.8bn over three years the Cambodian government had been hoping for, the main donors � which include Japan, the U.S., the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations, have said they will asses the progress the government makes in meeting its commitments before deciding on the amount for 2006.
