Protected area management is threatened by weak articulation between the goals for conservation, national development and local livelihoods. This discussion note examines the competing interests for lands inside Cambodian Protected Areas and makes suggestions for policy considerations.

This discussion note emerged from a Policy dialogue co-organized by the Prek Leap National College of Agriculture, the Ministry of Environment, and the Mekong Region Land Governance Project on 21st December 2015 in Phnom Penh to foster common understanding on the challenges of managing state land in protected areas and stimulate discussion on appropriate tools to address these challenges.
