BACKGROUND
Poor, rural communities in Cambodia are highly vulnerable to the detrimental impacts of climate change due to their low adaptive capacity.

This project integrates the National Community Forestry Programme (NCFP) with the National Biodigester Programme (NBP), focusing on supporting poor, rural communities in three areas: local decision making processes regarding adaptation to climate change; adaptation to climate change through the sustainable management of community forests; and adaptation to climate change through the use of biodigesters integrated with home garden enterprises.


Women and children reliant upon community forests are the main beneficiaries of the project through a reduction in time spent collecting firewood and cooking to allow time for women to manage home garden enterprises and children to attend school.

The communities, regional and national government also benefit from the development of sustainably managed community forests, the effective participation in cantonment community forestry planning and coordination committees linked to the equivalent national body (NCFPCC).

Results of the project continue to inform the national biodigester programme and its potential development within the context of community forestry.
