Communal Customary Tenure : a case study in Srovoy Village – Kompong Thom, Cambodia

The lives and livelihoods of the people in Srovoy village revolve around the surrounding hills and lakes of the area, which provide food and medicine from wild plants as well as fish for sustenance. The hills are a shared resource for cattle raising, which, aside from rice planting, is the village’s primary source of livelihood. Infrastructure development by the Cambodian government, starting in 2005, has created profound changes in the village’s way of life, accelerating the privatization of previously communal areas and resulting in the erosion of community solidarity.
