    Abstract In Cambodia, a large portion of the population engages in primary sector production such as agriculture, forestry and fishery, and the people’s livelihoods are directly dependent upon the availability of natural resources. The natural environment, however, has been undergoing severe deterioration for several decades. Similar challenges are being faced in many different countries and it is therefore of global importance to explore ways to conserve the environment while allowing people’s livelihoods to develop. In this context, the term socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS) was coined to refer to areas shaped by production activities characterised by harmonious human-nature interactions. The aim of this study is to deepen the understanding of Cambodian production landscapes using three different perspectives drawing on the SEPLS concept: structure, benefits and changes. Based on a literature review, key characteristics of SEPLS were identified including their mosaic structure and the diverse benefits they provide. Further study is needed to understand the significance of SEPLS in Cambodia in terms of the biodiversity and environmental benefits they provide.
