Cambodia evicts floating homes despite villagers’ protests

Cambodia’s capital of Phnom Penh has started evicting its famous “floating villages” on the banks of the Tonle Sap River, despite the objections of longtime residents who say they have nowhere else to go. For generations, the floating wooden houseboats of Phnom Penh have been both livelihood and way of life for mostly ethnic Vietnamese families, home to fish farming and interconnected by warrens of hand-built bridges interspersed with sunken poles and small boats. “Our ancestors have always been here,”…

The first cash transfers were…

Overlooked in this reporting are the rising cases and deaths in Cambodia, which appeared to have a strong track record on COVID-19 until recently. As of January 2021, one year after reporting its first case, Cambodia had reported zero deaths and only 400 total cases, garnering varying degrees of praise.
