Environmentally Impacted

Ten years, nineteen days -

Okay. Imagine you’re a villager, in rural Cambodia. You depend on the forest for your livelihood – collecting wood, hunting animals, gathering edible plants, maybe doing things like tapping resin.

The government grants a logging company rights to log the area. They’re required to submit ten year environmental impact plans. If you want, you can see it – for nineteen days only, in the capitol, Phnom Penh. Then it’s a done deal.
