Close to 4,000 households have, or will be, affected by the project to rehabilitate Cambodia's railways; over a quarter of these require relocation. This report highlights significant flaws in the project’s resettlement plans and processes. Based on a 2012 survey of affected groups in Phnom Penh, the report assesses the impacts of resettlement, including landlessness, joblessness, homelessness, marginalisation, increased morbidity, food insecurity, loss of access to community resources, and social disarticulation. The survey data finds that relocated households did indeed suffer harm.
