Alarm over Cambodia 'timber grab'

Cambodia deforestation

Campaigners say that deforestation in Cambodia is taking place on a large scale

Ancient, highly valuable forests are being lost at an “unprecedented” rate from protected lands in Cambodia, according to a new report.

The analysis, from campaign group Forest Trends, says that large corporations are using legitimate development permits to illegally clear land.

Around 2,000 sq km of forests are being lost every year, they say.

Effective governance of the forests in Cambodia has broken down, they argue.
