Despite a blooming tourist industry Cambodia remains a country with very high levels of poverty, particularly for ethnic minorities and those living in rural areas. Families dependent on fishing have seen fish stocks devastated by illegal fishing, such as using dynamite and electrocution, while farmers struggle in the face of land-grabbing and deforestation by businesses.

We’re helping vulnerable communities to stand up for their rights, protect their rivers, forests and land and adapt the way they farm and fish to better cope with climate change. We’re also helping to provide access to safe water and ensuring communities have stable livelihoods all year round. Women in rural areas are also receiving help with money saving schemes, setting up small businesses and protecting themselves from gender-based violence.
