“Phnom Penh: The Royal Government adopted a draft for a policy about the development of ethnic minority tribespeople in an attempt to promote their knowledge and skills, in order to enhance their capacity, and to promote their living standard through sustainable development which completely depends on the use of natural resources.

“During the meeting of the Council of Ministers in the morning of 26 April 2009 under the presidency of the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor Hun Sen, the draft of a policy about the development of ethnic minority tribespeople, drafted by the Ministry of Rural Development with assistance from the United Nations Development Program, from development partners, and from some other relevant institutions, was adopted in order to contribute to maintain, protect, and conserve the cultures, traditions, beliefs, customs, and languages of ethnic minority tribespeople living in Cambodia.

“During that meeting, also another draft for the registration of land and the rights of land use of the ethnic minority tribespeople’s communities in the Kingdom of Cambodia was adopted, to present perspectives, intentions, and legal requirements for the registration of land by the ethic minority tribespeople’s communities, land that can be registered as collective property, with collective rights of use, and control of the land by ethnic minority tribespeople.

“At the end of the meeting, a draft decree about procedures for the registration of ethnic minority tribespeople’s land, aiming to define principles, mechanisms, and procedures for the registration of ethnic minority tribespeople’s land as collective property was adopted. As for the rights to use and to control the land, the communities are eligible to have collective property, as recognized by the law, such as right of inheritance, the right to use, and the right to exploit, but all collective property cannot be sold or transferred to any person who is a member of the community, except if any member of a community leaves that community.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.17, #4877, 25.4.2009
