The culture of indigenous peoples in Cambodia is under threat. The environment in which indigenous communities live is changing rapidly. This is having a profound impact within those communities. Historically, cultural practices and traditional authorities are forces maintaining the collective identity, solidarity and cohesion of indigenous communities and, importantly, protecting communal rights and assets such as land and natural resources. Working with cultural practices and traditional authorities must therefore be central to community led development.
