Land governance questions in Cambodia intersect with the interventions of many actors from government, private sector and civil society groups. On the government side, the actors are not restricted to Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction (MLMUPC). Whilst MLUMPC is responsible for land administration (registration, land titling and subsequent registration), land distribution (clear allocation and use of State land for public and private purposes) and land management (i.e. spatial planning and land use planning), other ministries have had a very large impact on land policy and its implementation. The role of Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) and Ministry of Environment (MoE) in granting economic land concessions has been significant and has de facto resulted in expropriating large numbers of smallholder farmers and indigenous people with customary rights. In fact, most observers agree that the main decisions concerning the land policy are effectively taken by the Prime Minister, as was release of Order 01 in an attempt to regularize many land occupations by small of medium farmers in areas considered as forest State land and to reduce tensions within the concession areas by issuing land titles to actual land occupiers (“leopard skin” policy).
