Cambodia, like many developing nations, relies heavily on agriculture for its economy. However, the proliferation of large-scale agribusiness land concessions and extractive activities has turned them into significant sources of carbon emissions within the country.

Through their daily actions, from curbing illegal fishing to embracing agroecology, they exemplify how food sovereignty can contribute to cooling our warming planet.
