Community Conservation and Sustainable Use of Tropical Upland Forests in Battambang, Cambodia
by Sarin Say, Village Support Group
The aim of the project is to improve the capacity of the remote Cambodian indigenous minority communities of Phnom Rai and Toek Thlak to sustainably manage their community forests.
The community-led approach will enable the development and implementation of conservation and sustainable use plans to protect of threatened species and the forest ecosystem, whilst continuing to support their unique culture.
We will use a variety of methods to build capacity including training, workshops, field practice and on-the-job training.
