In The News: Displacement and development

The Phnom Penh Post has just published a special supplement, “Displacement and Development” in the September 29th edition.

The article has this to say about filling of Boeung Kak:  “…now architects and urban planners are saying the loss of the lake to commercial development will tarnish the city once regarded as the “Pearl of Asia”, ceding one of its last remaining green spaces to colourless urban sprawl. Urban-planning experts contacted by the Post said the project was irresponsible and could trigger unforeseen environmental consequences, despite  City Hall assurances that the 133-hectare Boeung Kak development has been vetted for its environmental impact.
