Cambodia....Every year, with the onset of the rainy season, Cambodia's Mekong River rises and its flow is forced back up the Tonle Sap River and into Tonle Sap Lake, which expands fourfold to over a million hectares and completely floods the surrounding forests and wetlands. Communities all around the lake have adapted to this unusual natural phenomenon by spending part of the year on land and part on water, deriving sustenance and livelihoods from the lake and flooded forest, which is a prime fish habitat.
