Community Fishery Project
Partnership Program to Support Forestry and Fishery Communities (PaFF) supports the community fisheries and forestry to secure and exercise their rights to their natural resources through receiving legal community fisheries and forestry agreement from the government, implementing their natural resources management and protection plans. The program ensures that local and indigenous communities improve their livelihoods by engaging in sustainable community-based livelihood approaches that protect their ecosystem and reduce pressure on their communities’ natural resources. CEPA is one of the implementing partners who is supporting community fishery in Stung Treng province which focuses on the community legalization, community fishery management plan development and implementation. We have been supporting 25 community fisheries and community fishery network initiative.
