This report is intended to provide the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) and the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM) with a practical resource and recommendations for the next stage of implementation of the Law on Disaster Management (DM Law).

A new report Monday claims national parks in Cambodia have been gutted to launder illegally logged wood into the Vietnamese timber economy by officials from both countries.

Cambodia’s government on Friday dismissed accusations by an environmental group that the country is still exporting sand, despite a national ban, saying a vessel seen loading the material in a vide

Vietnamese officials, companies and private individuals are systematically smuggling huge amounts of illegally logged timber from protected areas of Cambodia into Vietnam, according to a new report

This report is an update to the UNCTAD/World Bank study (the “first phase”).

The volume of discarded electronics in East and South-East Asia jumped almost two-thirds between 2010 and 2015, and e-waste generation is growing fast in both total volume and per capita measures,

Southeast Asia faces a major challenge: meeting its growing energy needs while limiting its greenhouse gas emissions.

Severe malaria is a life-threatening complication of an infection with the protozoan parasite Plasmodium falciparum, which requires immediate treatment. Safety and efficacy concerns with currently used drugs accentuate the need for new chemotherapeutic options against severe malaria. Here we describe a medicinal chemistry program starting from amicarbalide that led to two compounds with optimized pharmacological and antiparasitic properties. SC81458 and the clinical development candidate, SC83288, are fast-acting compounds that can cure a P.

A simultaneous analysis of 13 years of remotely sensed data of land cover, fires, precipitation, and aerosols from the MODIS, TRMM, and MISR satellites and the AERONET network over Southeast Asia is performed, leading to a set of robust relationships between land-use change and fire being found on inter-annual and intra-annual scales over Southeast Asia, reflecting the heavy amounts of anthropogenic influence over land-use change and fires in this region of the world.

Urban populations are projected to increase from 54% to 66% of the global population by 2050, with close to 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. Cities and towns—a growing source of greenhouse gas emissions—will need to address challenges posed by climate change.
