Cambodia: Cambodian forest defenders under threat

, Index number: ASA 23/2005/2020

Cambodia’s Prey Lang rainforest - one of Southeast Asia’s most important ecosystems – is under threat. In recent weeks, Prey Lang’s defenders have been threatened, arrested, and attacked. The harassment of Prey Lang’s defenders is a threat not only to the rainforest and the Indigenous peoples who live there, but also the global struggle against climate change.
