The School of International Development and Global Studies presents as part of the Brown Bag series:

“Coastal Cambodians on the move: the interplay of migration, social wellbeing and resilience in three fishing communities”

Fisheries decline, sand mining and illegal fishing by outsiders: these are some of the challenges people living in small-scale fishing communities along Cambodia’s coast face every day. Meanwhile, Cambodia has undergone unprecedented economic growth over the past decade. Within the last few years, its impact has started to reach the coast. With promises of alternative economic opportunities, increasingly coastal Cambodians are on the move. Who is leaving? And conversely, who isn't? Where are people going? What are they doing? And how does this affect the social wellbeing for migrants and non-migrants alike? Importantly, what do these dynamics mean for the resilience of coastal communities and their future?
