On 20 December 2018, The Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR) released a briefing note on business and human rights entitled “Preventing, Mitigating and Remedying Land-Related Rights Violations in the Kingdom of Cambodia” on its website in both Khmer and English versions. As part of its business and human rights project, it conducted research in order to assess the situation of land conflicts in Cambodia and their impact on human rights. In collaboration with ActionAid Cambodia, CCHR identified three land disputes, which, taken together, affected more than 1,600 households: the land dispute involving villagers and Mitr Phol Sugar Company in Koun Kriel Commune, Samraong District, Oddar Meanchey Province; the one involving indigenous communities and rubber company Socfin-KCD in Bu Sra Commune, Pech Chreada District, Mondulkiri Province; and finally, the land dispute involving villagers and the MDS Company in the MDS Thmor Da Special Economic Zone (‘SEZ’) in Thma Da Commune, Veal Veaeng District, Pursat Province.
