  • Product Description

This book discusses the complex political and human landscape of the Lake, and also to explore why the politics of space is inherently significant to resource governance issues. The book examines the Tonle Sap as a `global, `regional and `national space, by different international, state and non-state agencies. At the meso-level, the book explores the territorialization of the Tonle Sap, primarily through three key forms of territoriality: commercial fishing, conservation of environment and biodiversity, and forms of `public fishing. To examine the differing boundaries, territories and contestations over space in the Lake, the research focused on four different fishing villages: Kampong La, Kampong Loung, Kampong Phluk and Peam Bang. Due to the annual `flood pulse', and great transformations in the wetlands, floodplain, and extent of the lake waters between dry and wet seasons, social ecological relations also affect the spatiality of fishing and territoriality of different communities. This book focuses on key differences between `floating villages', `stand-stilt village and farming-fishing village.
