Cambodia (The kingdom of Cambodia) is a country in South East Asia with a population of over 14 million people,

covers an area of 181,035 sq km. The kingdom's capital and its largest city is Phnom Penh. The country borders

Thailand to its west and northwest, Laos to its northeast and Vietnam to its east and southeast.


The geography of Cambodia is dominated by the Mekong River and the Tonlé Sap, an important source of fish to the Cambodians.

The country has a large forestry resource, forest covers 53% of the land of Cambodia. With the potential to sustain a robust timber industry

and contribute enormously to national development. But the recent history of Cambodian forestry has been turbulent,  and the timber

sector is in disarray.

The concession system has been suspended, yet unauthorized timber production apparently continues.

The implementation of recent reforms, and increased law enforcement, are urgently required.
