Farmers and fishermen warily eye changes to climate

In the Kampong Phluk fishing village on the Tonle Sap lake, home to thousands of families in Siem Reap province, fishermen say their catch this year has been too poor to live on. …

Ning Ny, chief of Kampong Phluk commune, in Siem Reap, said almost 100 percent of the households here are fishing. The community has had to adapt, he said, setting up safety zones for boats and digging a pond to store water when things get too dry, or in case there’s a wildfire. “We have our own source for water,” he said.
