Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,

Cambodia: Families suffer debt, lost businesses, & can no longer farm as land dispute drags on; call for quicker resolution

Author: Pech Sotheary, Khmer Times, Published on: 10 December 2017

"Land dispute protest drags on", 8 December 2017

Representatives of 175 families in Koh Kong province gathered once again in front of the Ministry of Land Management…to ask for a quicker resolution to a decade-long land dispute.

Land Management Minister Chea Sophara announced the creation of a working group to solve the dispute at the end of August 2017. …Since then the resolution process has stalled, residents claim.

The residents have been involved in a land dispute with three sugar companies, Koh Kong Sugar Industry, Koh Kong Plantation, and Heng Huy Company.

“The ministry did an incomplete job solving this problem. For us this means debt, losing our businesses, being unable to farm,” Ms Nherng said.
