Enhancing wetland resilience for improved biodiversity and livelihoods in Cambodia
WWT - Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust
Host Country Institutions:
Birdlife International, Department of Freshwater Wetland Conservation (DFWC), NatureLife Cambodia, Cambodian Rural Development Team (CRDT)
This project will conserve two internationally important protected areas in the Cambodian Lower Mekong Delta (CLMD), and enhance their connectivity to a healthier wider wetland landscape.
The project will promote resilient sustainable livelihoods, restore wildlife habitat and establish multiple-use zoning schemes in the protected areas. This will safeguard endangered species and improve livelihood security and wellbeing for 6800 people. The project will also enhance understanding of the surrounding seasonally inundated wetland system and promote more effective and harmonised wetland management across the region.
