With Fish Under their Feet, How Could You Ever Go Hungry?

During my fieldwork in Takeo province, Cambodia, this house spoke to me.

For some people around the world, flooding is becoming an increasing concern, and can even be called a disaster. While for others, flooding is considered essential for their livelihoods (e.g. fishing and farming). The people who live in this house have built it in this location on stilts so that they are closer to their food source. Although this draws many other challenges, the benefits are outweighed, especially in a country where so many people go hungry.
