Abstract

Economic land concessions (ELCs) are supposed to be transforming Cambodian agriculture into a heavyweight industry and raising the living standards of millions of rural Cambodians, according to government policy documents. But, in an academic paper published last month, Arnim Scheidel, a PhD in ecological economics at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, argued that poverty reduction is merely a cover for what he terms “land capture”.
