This discussion note emerged from a Policy dialogue co-organised by the Prek Leap National College of Agriculture, the Ministry of Environment, and the Mekong Region Land Governance Project on 21 December 2015 in Phnom Penh to foster common understanding on the challenges of managing state land in protected areas and stimulate discussion on appropriate tools to address these challenges.
