FORESTRY IN CAMODIA

Some 85% of Cambodia's population lives in rural communities and more than 60% depends on agriculture, forestry and fisheries. Cambodia has valuable forestry resources. A rough estimate of the sustainable wood products yield of forests is in the order of 1 million cubic meters (MCM) per year. In addition, the country has valuable non-wood forest resources (e.g., rattan, bamboo, wildlife and food crops).

2005-06 is the most successful year in the story of Agriculture in Cambodia. The total Rice production is about 6 million tons. The total catch of “Dai-fisheries” have increased 3 times compare to the average catch of the last few years.

Nursery/Forestation

Nestled in the Kampong Cham and Kampong Som Provinces of Cambodia. Clark Forestry Consulting, partnering with the Cambodian government has started a tropical hardwoods nursery and plantations. The seedlings grown in this nursery are being planted in deforested or abandoned agriculture areas within the provinces.

Forest Management

The Royal Government always regards environmental protection and sustainable natural resource utilization as its prioritized duty. Cambodia has developed comprehensive legal, policy and institutional framework to ensure environmental protection and sustainable utilization of natural resources.

Throughout Cambodia, 23 protected areas have been designated. The figure is increasing due to more allocation of forested areas for protection and conservation purpose. However, Cambodia still recognizes the necessity of a comprehensive reform in managing natural resources, such as forest, fisheries and land--the prominent national assets.
