Mapping Customary Tenure in Protected Areas in Cambodia

This video describes the consequences of the government’s increase of protected areas (PAs) by the government in 2016 and the role played by MRLG in supporting the recognition of customary tenure within the PAs. Firstly, MRLG, in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment, has supported the Wildlife Conservation Society’s efforts to map customary land use inside the Kulen Promtep Wildlife Sanctuary together with the local communities for the zoning of the PA. A second initiative has been the advocacy for recognizing customary land use rights and co-management of PAs within the new draft Environmental and Natural Resource Code with the Vishnu Law Group.
