where we work  

History

Culture and Environment Preservation Association (CEPA) was founded in 1995 by four social and environmental activists committed to preserving their natural resources. Realizing and believing that the issues of natural resource management were first and foremost the most important problems facing the country and were in need of immediate and permanent solution.

The organization focused its early work on training young activists on nature resource management and empowering forest and river depedent people on resource management. In the past ten years the organization has expanded to include advocacy on environmental rights, community-based forest management, and research.

These efforts has helped indigenous communities and ethnic minorities in the north-eastern part of Cambodia preserve their culture by asserting their rights at the same time accepting development through the practice of sustainable methods to conserve their natural resources.​​​​​ read more...
