Briefing paper: Cambodia's Draft Law on the Management and Use of Agricultural Land

In late 2011, the Cambodian government quietly released a draft Law on the Management and Use of Agricultural Land that would have serious implications for private landholders. The draft law as currently written could be used as legal cover for land-grabbing and for those who wish to exploit and personally profit from Cambodia’s land and resources. Most alarmingly, the law creates felony criminal liability for any actions that violate the law’s far reaching provisions.
