Open Development Cambodia (ODC) has published a new online resource detailing Cambodia’s indigenous communities and their land in both Khmer and English. Together with the website’s map explorer tool, the profile page aims to provide the most up-to-date information on the country’s indigenous communities and communal land, and presents a clear picture using data visualizations. The page can be accessed here.
The Indigenous Communities (IC) profile page aims to illuminate the present status of indigenous communities and their range of land rights. ODC highlights a total of 11 indigenous communities that were officially granted communal land titles by the end of 2015. In total, the registered communal lands have a stretch of 7,792.47 hectares, with locations in three provinces (Mondulkiri, Ratanakiri and Kratie).
ODC is an open data website-based NGO, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. Information or data in the public domain should be freely available to everyone to use and republish as they wish. ODC welcomes any feedback, comments and questions on this profile page.
