The latest special issue from APV, guest edited by Ian Baird, considers the interplay between Indigenous Peoples and natural resources in Cambodia:
The papers in this collection investigate various aspects of the cultural interfaces in resource and environmental governance systems affecting Indigenous and local communities in a range of settings. They point strongly to the value of Indigenous knowledge, values and ontologies in re-thinking the nature, implications and challenges of more collaborative systems for natural resource management and development planning:

One of the most important aspects of China's economic development is the accompanying rapid urbanisation. China's growth has, however, been marked by unbalanced regional development in the past three decades as most of the coastal cities and regions are spearheading rapid growth while inland and rural areas are lagging behind.
The changing role of the Chinese state in urban and regional development is the key theme underlying this special issue. The assembled papers address different aspects of this multifaceted process that is still unfolding.

• economic relationships between those countries, including the consequences of industry, service and resource developments
• the relationship between the environment and development
• the interaction of countries in the region
• the concept of the Asia Pacific region as an economic and socio-political entity
• the environmental preconditions and consequences of development initiatives in the region
• the impacts of globalisation on the social, economic, cultural and environmental systems of the Asia Pacific region and the implications of this for geographical theory and practice.
