Giving a voice to the Cambodian garment workers: Improving health, safety and security conditions

IMG_5843On Sunday, 09th March 2014, the first training course for 10 selected female garment workers took place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The objective of this training course is to establish a network of Cambodian garment workers who later shall publish articles and pictures about their health, safety and security conditions. Therefor the 10 garment workers have been equipped with smart phones to be able to take pictures, record sounds or even videos. The reports by the workers will be shared on the homepage of RLS's partner organisation the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM). While this project is focusing on giving the garment workers a chance to address the problems they suffering from by themselves, a radio programme will report about their discoveries and latest developments on a weekly basis.

Social impacts of Climate Change in Mekong

publicationWorking Paper on the Social Impact of Climate Change in Vietnam

Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam, is heavily endangered by the impacts of climate change. In recent policies the Vietnamese government mainly focuses on technical approaches to adapt to and to mitigate the risks of climate change. It can be foreseen that there will be impacts far beyond the solutions offered by technology. In this working paper, the author Steffen Rohkohl addresses the social impacts of climate change in the Mekong Delta region. His findings draw special attention to the risks for the poor population and show that the recent economic development in Vietnam, being caught in the neoliberal paradigm of growth and a financialisation of common goods, may lead to an intensification of the social impacts of climate change.
