Antecedentes

The INRM project objective is to promote integrated landscape management for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, natural resources and ecosystem services in the northern part of Cambodia. The intent is to generate multiple landscape benefits including effective conservation of globally threatened species and high conservation forests, improve management of natural resources and ensure the maintenance of ecosystem services. It is aimed specifically at improving the management of protected areas and ensuring their financial sustainability, enhancing the productivity of production and agricultural lands and improving local livelihoods. Increasing demand for forest, agricultural and wildlife products, crop land and agriculture monocultures, and infrastructure and transportation development has accelerated in recent years thereby, rapidly changing the landscape with consequential threats to biodiversity and ecosystem services. The project is thus aimed at addressing these multiple threats by harmonizing socio-economic development, sustainable management of land, forests, natural resources and biodiversity conservation through an integrated management approach, with water as a catalyst, in Northern Landscapes of Cambodia. To achieve these, actions will be taken to – strengthen policies and institutional capacity at the national and sub-national levels to ensure the integration of biodiversity and ecosystem services in sector and sub-national socio-economic development planning.

- Component 2: Effective management of Protected Areas and surrounding riparian and multiple use production landscapes in Northern Cambodia;
- Component 3: Knowledge management, gender mainstreaming, learning and M&E
