Mr Hay Khoeun has just returned from the fields, where he was planting cactus on the edge of a newly build water reservoir. After eating his lunch, he explains that the weather has changed since he was a young boy: now it is much hotter than before. The heat amplifies important problems such as access to safe water. The area is drought prone and for at least two months each year, there is no water. All the farming activities stop. During that time, drinking water becomes scarce.
