Land grabs and deforestation in Cambodia

Geoff Riley

30th July 2015

This BBC article, Alarm over 'timber grab' from Cambodia's protected forests, highlights a worrying report by campaign group Forest Trends about the scale of forests being cleared for timber in the developing economy, Cambodia. The article reports that governance of the forests in Cambodia has broken down - a clear sign of the problems that arise when effective property rights are missing.
