Kampong Thom – Prey Lang mapping project continues:
February 20, 2014 | Posted in: News
From 24 to 30 January, five PLCN team members and one CYN volunteer were assisted by GNA staff to conduct mapping in three Sandan District communes. The group found that 6 out of 8 community forests had been largely destroyed by Vietnamese rubber concessionaire CRCK, forest crimes, migrants and even community members who said that they had cleared the forests for agricultural purposes. The mapping team also learned that around 30 families were engaged in a land dispute with CRCK over two areas inside Prey Lang and had received a response to complaints filed with provincial and district officials that they received their land back.
