The above article echoes findings from interviews
conducted by students from the School for Field Studies, a Climate Crowd partner, in Tonle Sap villages. Of the 63 individuals interviewed:
- 95% indicate that fish stocks have declined due, in part, to recent climate changes
- 86% report changing fishing practices including fishing in new areas and using finer nets in order to catch what remains, leading to further declines
- 49% report switching to other livelihoods such as crocodile farming
- 79% report migration to find work elsewhere, particularly Thailand
