Key Factors that Influence Success of Community Fisheries Management


At the end of the year 2000, The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) introduced a reform of Fisheries Policy. This has mostly led to a significant benefit to the livelihoods of people in remote areas, particularly the people whose livelihoods are dependent on fishery resources. This reform empowers community members to manage their own fishery resources through the establishment of Community Fisheries (CFs), allowing participation in conservation and boosting effectiveness of the utilization of local fishery resources in an equitable and sustainable manner.This initiative is supported by the International Development Research Center (IDRC) of Canada and is being implemented by the Community Fisheries Development Office (CFDO) of the Fisheries Administration (FiA) since 2003 in collaboration with the CBNRM Learning Institute. The Project supports more intensive community fisheries efforts to 3 pilots sites, namely: Kampong Kra Sang in Takeo province, Phneat Kohpongsat in Banteay Meanchey province and Thmor Sor in Koh Kong Province.Three case studies have been compiled in this publication in order to reflect different experience and issues from three community specific situations. Case one covers illegal fishing in Thmor Sor Commune, Koh Kong Province; and case three covers cooperation amongst relevant stakeholders for sustainable CF management.
