Indigenous youths networks share their findings on the recognition of customary tenure in Cambodia
The Cambodia Indigenous Peoples Organization (CIPO) organized a national workshop for indigenous youths to share experiences. This provided an opportunity for indigenous youths from different places to come and discuss with other youth networks and organizations at the national level on the current situation of land tenure insecurity of the indigenous peoples. The workshop was held on Saturday 10th December 2016 in Phnom Penh, and gathered 74 participants (26 women) from 11 organizations. The workshop aimed to generate awareness and debate among youth on issues facing indigenous people. The group included both indigenous youth as well as those who do not belong to indigenous ethnicities to enlarge the understanding of issues.
With the additional support from MRLG, the workshop was able to extend an opportunity for members of the Cambodia Indigenous Peoples Alliance (CIPA) to present key findings from a thematic study on the recognition and security of customary tenure of the indigenous peoples. This was a jointly developed study by CIPA and MRLG to raise further awareness and discussion among these youths. The exercise reinforced the understanding of issues so that they are more prepared for more meaningful dialogue with concerned government institutions in order to improve the land tenure security for the indigenous peoples in Cambodia.
