Cambodia’s economy continues to be dominated by agriculture, with exports contributing US$758.4 million in 2014.1 More than 70 percent of Cambodians depend on agriculture for their livelihoods.2 Fishing and fisheries make up another cornerstone of Cambodia’s rural economy, providing an estimated 80 percent of animal protein in the typical Cambodian diet.3
Cambodia’s environment provides natural resources including forests, waterways, plants and wildlife. Natural resources also include minerals, energy and extractives. The environment is varied, covering at least seven distinct landscapes across the country.
ODC first published its report in 2013. Following feedback and discussions with other experts and agencies, including Cambodia’s Forestry Administration, a revised version of the maps was created in 2014 and published in early 2015.
Land is fundamental to the livelihoods of many Cambodians. Around 80 percent of people live in rural areas and around 73 percent depend on agriculture for their livelihoods.1 In urban areas, many are dependent on plots of land close to livelihoods, services and social support networks.
