Recently Environmental Studies PhD candidate Sierra Deutsch  traveled to Myanmar and Cambodia to study natural resource management, and wrote an article about it in Voices from the Sylff Community. From the Sylff website:

Sierra Deutsch, a Sylff fellow at the University of Oregon, went to Myanmar and Cambodia to assess the two countries’ different approaches to natural resource management. In this article, she describes the preliminary findings of her research and argues that the experiences of local people affected by natural resource policies are important and may have implications for the success of those policies.
