Summary

Cambodia supports some of the most threatened waterbird species in the world. Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) has killed over 1,700 waterbirds in Cambodia since 2021, and wild bird mortalities are being recorded in unprecedented numbers globally (1,2). We aim to create a scalable model for Cambodia’s wetlands via a network of informed and skilled communities taking collective action to reduce the risk of HPAI spillover at the poultry-waterbird interface, while protecting livelihoods and scaling up wildlife health surveillance.
