CORRECTION

The Phnom Penh Post would like to correct two errors in last issue's article titled

'Cambodia's rural poor at risk from slow forest reform'.

First, the article incorrectly attributed to Steven Schonberger of the World Bank

the comment that "donors were disappointed" with the results of the September

27 donors' meeting with government. Rather the World Bank had indicated that there

seems to be general frustration among all stakeholders that the transition to the

new forest management framework is proving to take longer than was expected.

Second, Mr Schonberger's statement regarding "faster progress" had specifically

referred to the transition to the overall new forest management framework, rather

than the specific concession review process.

The Post regrets these errors.
