This 2012 report is an assessment of the human rights impact of economic land concessions (ELCs) and other land concessions and major development projects in Cambodia. It includes not only an analysis of concessions pertaining to agroindustry (for example, rubber, sugar, acacia and cassava plantations), but also to concessions for mining, oil and gas, forestry, and concessions for the purposes of tourism, property development, and large scale infrastructure, such as hydropower dams. During the Special Rapporteur's mission, on 7 May 2012, the Prime Minister announced a Government initiative relating to economic land concessions, including the institution of a moratorium on the granting of new concessions and a review of the compliance of existing concessions . He subsequently announced a rapid land titling initiative relating to people living near concessions. This report takes into account these recent developments and seeks to build on the positive aspects of these initiatives. The report analyses information between 2009 and the end of July 2012. Available in English and Khmer versions.
