Profile for Aquatic Resources Management: Ou Ta Putt, Chamkar Youn and Prek Sromoach Villages Kampong Khleang Commune, Soutr Nikom District, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia.
- This publication is part of a collection of three profiles covering nine aquatic resources-dependent villages in the provinces of Stung Treng, Takeo and Siem Reap. The profiles are important because in most, if not all, of the aquatic-resources villages of Cambodia, critical data and information useful for planning and management are not available in a documented form. The development of the village profiles is viewed as a basic requirement for planning and overall management. It is only an initial step to identify future programs and projects related to aquatic resources. The profiles depict the present state of the villages and their aquatic resources. In general, the villages have limited infrastructure and other physical resources. In the villages of Takeo and Siem Reap, total flooding occurs in the wet season and villagers must rely on transportation by boat. In Stung Treng villages, partial flooding is also a problem as it makes the few existing roads significantly impassable during the wet season.
