Cambodia's Environmentally Planned Resort Island Koh Rong
Emerging Cambodia resort destination Koh Rong is being touted as the first environmentally planned resort island in Asia. Planning for environmental impact and development is being lead by the Scott Wilson Group's Malaysia office. Lauri Van Run who has 20 years experience in large scale projects and prior to that spent 5 years with the United Nations is spearheading the work.
Developed by The Royal Group of Singapore, the island is 30 minutes from Sihanoukville, and takes up an area of 80 square kilometers with a population based of only 1,500. Key elements of the plan are marine resources, protection of flora and fauna, waste management and social programs for sustainable employment of locals in the tourism industry.
