Bridging the gap between conservation and community development in post-conflict Cambodia

A case study on Fauna & Flora International’s (FFI) work in Veal Veng District at the western end of the Cardamom Mountain range. The first priority to address hunger (a driver of many environmental problems) in ways compatible with biodiversity conservation. Of particular concern was a proposal to drain Veal Veng Marsh— an important wetland and the world’s largest breeding ground of the Critically Endangered and culturally sacred Siamese crocodile—and turn it into rice fields. FFI called for this to be halted on environmental and cultural grounds.
