Phase 2 of this project builds on previous community-based fish conservation work in Cambodia with an emphasis on local capacity development by establishing effective co-management arrangements. The project brings together government, civil society, communities and the scientific community to reduce threats to wetlands biodiversity and fisheries resources in targeted areas, while improving local livelihoods through recovery of fisheries resources. The project aims to gain insights into wetland management and promote equitable distribution of wetlands benefits to marginalized stakeholders including women and migrants. It will expand the fish conservation zone, and establish joint patrol arrangements across sites and a learning network.
