In May 2014, the Royal Government of Cambodia approved a new National Housing Policy. This Policy seeks to address serious long-standing problems related to inadequate housing in Cambodia, in particular in urban areas in the country. Following the adoption of this policy, the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction (MLMUP) convened a National Housing Forum with the view to raise awareness of the Policy to both civil society actors and the private sector. At this Forum, the Government also entered into an agreement with Habitat for Humanity for support for the implementation of the National Housing Policy. Even though the Government has made considerable advancements in addressing the right to adequate housing, including through the adoption of the National Land Policy and Housing Policy, problems related to housing at relocation sites remain in the country.
As part of its mandate to monitor the implementation of laws and the actions of state institutions responsible for respecting and upholding rights and reporting problematic areas to the Government and other relevant actors for corrective action, OHCHR continues to monitor instances of forced evictions and resettlement sites in Cambodia. Such monitoring resulted in the analysis “Eviction and Resettlement in Cambodia – Human Costs, Impacts and Solutions” which was released in 2012. Since then, resettlement sites have undergone several changes. With funding from the European Union, OHCHR will contract a consultant to help assess the current situation at relocation sites and the changes these have seen since 2012, with the view to prepare a follow-up study on evictions and resettlement in Cambodia, to be released in 2019.
The scope of this follow-up study is to review the current human rights situation at selected resettlement sites in Cambodia. In 2017-2018, a first part of the research was carried by a consultant who developed standard evaluation criteria – based on existing national and international standards -, an evaluation scale which will be translated into color coded ratings (e.g. one color for resettlement sites that have not reached the minimum standards, another for resettlements sites reaching most of the minimum standards but still needing improvements, and yet another one for resettlement sites respecting the minimum standards); as well as questionnaires for the household surveys.
Based on the findings, the report will include action-oriented recommendations to the Government on the measures needed to be taken to ensure that living conditions at relocation sites correspond to its internationally assumed human rights obligations and domestic standards. These recommendations will also support OHCHR’s engagement with the Government on the National Development Plan for Resettlement Sites, which is currently being considered by the Royal Government of Cambodia.
