Project Description
Phnom Toap Cheang CF over 3,064 ha forest was established in 2003 in Dang Peng commune, Sre Ambel district, Koh Kong province. Prior to 1970s the forest here was categorised as evergreen and was dominant with highly valuable tropical hard woods such as Pjek, Sokram, Cheuteal, Pdiek, Dong chem, Rosewood, Beng, Neang Nuon, etc. From after 1980 local villagers felled down the trees and harvested NTFPs to support their livelihood thus severe damaged and degraded the forest. CF here was established and registered with MAFF through a Prakas # 486 dated 19 November 2008 and an agreement was entered into between the CF and Koh Kong FA Cantonment on 13th December 2010. With its establishment the CF has commitments to protect and use forest resource here on a sustainable manner through development of a CF management plan recognised by FA. However, since then the CF has never been able to sustainably manage the forest due to various challenges as below: limited knowledge by the CF members; Lack of clear boundary; Lack of a functional management plan; Illegal forest offenses have been frequently taking place; CF members face challenges with their livelihood Lack of fund to support CF activities; and Some CF members lack understanding of the benefits of CF. Goal: Phnom Toap Cheang CF has adequate capacity to manage and use forest resources in the CF area on a sustainable manner to support their local livelihood. Objective 1: By 2015 Phnom Toap Cheang CF has the necessary capacity to manage and use resources in the CF area sustainably. Objective 2: By 2015 165 HHs of the CF have improved livelihood through development of cow bank and collection of wild honey bees, rattans and other NTFPs.
