The kingdom of Cambodia is known for its tropical forests. However, the breath-taking natural paradise’s idyllic image is marred by one of the world’s highest deforestation rates. The lion’s share of the blame falls to the illegal wood trade. Large-scale investors are also converting cleared areas to cash crop plantations for export. The forest in and from which many indigenous groups live is steadily disappearing. Dispossessed of and displaced from their land, countless smallholders fall victim to landgrabs. Many people in Cambodia are going hungry, with women and children especially suffering chronic undernutrition.
