Things DO happen in the Kingdom of Wonder…
Little by little, a vast majority of the ‘hard’ land titles are being handed over to their owner, with land management clerks painstakingly checking and sifting through huge piles of documents. There are about 7 million land plots to be allocated to their rightfull owner… Fortunately for them. They now have some sort of security. This administrative effort unfortunately cannot hide the fact that evictions and land grabbings do still take place.
This is a follow-up post on the ‘Quest for Land’ story which is available as an iApp on iTunes and which reports on land issues in Cambodia since the year 2000 with texts by Robert Carmichael and over 700 photographs. Download it HERE.
CORRECTION: the number of land plots is between 10 and 12 million (thank you Michael Hayes).
