This project will enable 2,750 rural people to improve food security via an organic rice scheme at nine villages surrounding two globally irreplaceable protected areas in Cambodia; seven at Western Siem Pang (WSPWS) and two at Lomphat (LWS) wildlife sanctuaries. The project will work closely with local authorities and communities to support farmers and reduce illegal activities and establish two additional Community Protected Areas within the two sanctuaries, allowing for stable populations of Cambodia’s Big Five Critically Endangered bird species.
