A lot is happening with Disputed Waters. Ronald and André (a new contributor, check out his bio) arrived in Cambodia to spend five days with fishermen that are suffering from declining fish levels. Célia, another new contributor, has left for Israel to cover the problems surrounding the Jordan River. Her posts will soon appear here as well.

Ronald and André set up a campaign to get part of their trip financed through crowdfunding. They set a goal of US$ 2500 to cover expenses like the hire of transport, a small airplane for aerial photos and translators. We will keep you posted about the proceedings.

If you would like to support the project personally, you can visit our Donate page.


Bas Reliefs on the Angkor temples in Cambodia depict scenes of fishing, an important means of survival for the ancient cultures of Angkor.
