ASEAN Study: CAMBODIA
The Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) would like to express its deep appreciation for the support extended by IWGIA, not only financially but also the understanding it has given in the face of challenges faced in making this report come to fruition.
This study will provide a background history of Cambodia’s indigenous peoples, their profile (including groups of indigenous peoples; demography and population; location; brief information on their specific and unique characteristics, economic, social and cultural systems; customary, government and justice systems; natural resources management and women’s action), their current legal status, laws, policies, programs and mechanisms applicable to them, mapping of government programs in light of the ASEAN integration plan, key issues and challenges, indigenous organizations and their movements, alliances and networks, and key recommendations.
AIPP also acknowledges the support of the Cambodian Indigenous Youth Association (CIYA) to the author,Frédéric Bourdier, in the drafting of this report.
We are also grateful for the feedback received from Mong Vichet, Yun Mane, Pheap Sochea, Samin Ngach, Jeremy Ironside, Graeme Brown and others in providing updated information and clarifications.
