If so, how?
Security of land tenure is essential to the realization of all aspects of the right to adequate housing. It is widely accepted that people will improve their own conditions, and in particular the adequacy and habitability of their dwellings, if they are ensured that their rights to the land or house will be protected and they will not be forcibly or arbitrarily evicted. A number of legislative developments are under way that will be critical to the future of housing rights protection in Cambodia. Therefore HRTF in conjunction with its main NGO members will continue to priorities issues of forced evictions and secure tenure in their work.
