We didn't get any sleep the night before, so it was very thoughtful of the host to let us checked in early. He offered it without us asking! We appreciate it very much!
Without an evaluation of the reasons for the first failed phase, the Cambodian state is now embarking on a new, more expensive phase of development. Although media reports are awash with stories of environmentally and socially damaging hydropower projects popping up across the Mekong region, it is curious to ponder why irrigation projects have not attracted a similar level of critical attention. After all they also block rivers with walls of concrete, divert water flows across basins and landscapes, lead to the addition of vast amounts of agrichemicals to the environment, and other impacts besides, yet there have been no systematic regional studies to date beyond the World Commission on Dams report , which found that irrigation dams in Asia generally performed poorly against industry set targets. Yet perhaps surprisingly, in the bulk of cases irrigation projects in the region end up supplying just a fraction of their intended command area, especially in the dry season, and prove to be highly inefficient in delivering water reliably to farmers who need it. And in a few cases, projects fail to supply any agricultural land with water.
