Editor's note

Our energy issue, like everything we do, is all about preparing for the future. While it is a safe bet that Cambodia’s extractive industry will grow in the years to come, there ins no guarantee that  growth will benefit local populations, and we think that by preparing the4mselves to be an expert in the industry today, students will be much more likely to have a role in the responsible development of the sector tomorrow (story on page 10).

The topic of our other feature this weeks has taken on added significance in the past couple weeks as events in Japan have raised new questions about nuclear energy. We look at how nuclear energy might be developed and used in the Kingdom, and how to reduce the risks facing the Kingdom.

Our constructive Cambodian and email from broad touch on related topics. Tharum Bun writes about the aftermath of the natural disasters in Japan and Sophan Seng sent us a letter from Canada about the oil sands in Alberta.
