REDD-Monitor : "It is entirely untrue that all 13 of the projects have stable tenure over forest lands. Several of the communities have entirely collapsed with no practical management over forest lands. 15 year agreements with the Forestry Administration which can be revoked at any time, and which in practice have been entirely undermined by the presence of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces in no way constitutes secure tenure. There are now entire villages located within core project forests which community members have been powerless to stop. A large tract of the largest community forest area is also to be submerged by a Chinese built dam, yet the temporary forest agreements were ignored."
