Integrating fisheries management and wetland conservation, Stung Treng Ramsar site, Cambodia

The Ramsar site in Stung Treng province, Cambodia is home to more than 10,000 people from 21 villages as well as significant numbers of seasonal fishers who came to the area following the annual fish migrations. Despite richness of the biodiversity in the area, there is widespread poverty and food insecurity. Overexploitation of natural resources, the use of destructive fishing methods and upstream development of hydropower dams have reduced biodiversity and impacted the livelihoods of the people living in the area. This video shares lessons from a community-led fisheries management initiative at the Stung Treng Ramsar Wetland conservation area.
