Cambodia National Report on Protected Areas and Development:Review of Protected Areas and Development in the Lower Mekong River Region

In Cambodia, the links between protected areas and local communities are especially important and recent government decisions aim to put in place policies for managing those interactions productively. Increasingly the role of protected areas in development beyond local communities will need to be well defined and managed. For example, the PAD Review found critical links between protected areas and water supply for local districts and provinces; the energy sector and growth in the national economy; and fisheries and tourism for regional and global economies. . This national report of the Cambodia PAD Review (complemented by other reports in the PAD Review series) provides an initial analysis of the development relationships between the national protected area system and the economy and sets out strategies for each sector to optimise and maintain the benefits received.
