STT’s latest research, ‘Facts & Figures #36: Public Streets and Sidewalks’ maps the streets, sidewalks and open public spaces of Phnom Penh to create a picture of a city lacking in inclusivity. This research applies the indicator 11.7.1 of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11, which focuses on inclusive cities, to Phnom Penh and discusses its results.
STT researchers found that streets, sidewalk and open public space within the city accounted for a dismal 16.36% of total space within the city. Streets and sidewalks make up 14.26%, which is not bad when compared to Bangkok (15.9%) and Manila (15.2%) but is significantly below Singapore (21.6%). The 2.10% of open public space in Phnom Penh, such as parks, places to exercise, and places for civic participation, is well below the international standard of 10% and most open public space is found in the inner khans of Daun Penh and Chamkar Mon.
