Abstract: "We use field experiments as a method to study underlying strategic actions Cambodian and Vietnamese natural resource users take in regard to voluntary contribution to a public good and appropriation of common-pool resources. Two games were implemented in the two countries, investigating the importance of communication, leadership and monitoring on natural resource users' strategies. "This paper will present findings in regard to cooperation levels of players in eight villages in Cambodia and Vietnam. We will compare results between the countries, draw conclusions from the experimental outcomes and make suggestions for further research."
