Cambodia - Beyond Connections: Energy Access Diagnostic Report Based on the Multi-Tier Framework

Technologies, attributes, tiers, and use - those are the key concepts that the multi-tier framework (MTF) uses to assess the access of households in Cambodia to various sources of electricity and improved cooking solutions. It thus goes well beyond traditional binary assessment of energy access - of having or not having a connection to electricity, or using or not using a modern energy cooking solution. The MTF achieves this by capturing the many dimensions of energy access and the wide range of technologies that households use for power and for cooking. Consequently, the MTF approach estimates that 88.2 percent of households in Cambodia are in tier 1 or above. This report details the results of the MTF survey in Cambodia and provides an informed account of the status of both access to electricity and access to modern energy cooking solutions in the country.
