What We Do

Natural Resource Governance

The well-being of community people and biodiversity can be improved through sustainable land and natural resources governance at the landscape level.

ADIC in Action

ADIC worked with local communities in Bangkern Phal Village of Rumtum Commune in Preah Vihear Province to respond to logging activities and land encroachment in a Community Protected Area (CPA).

By conducting Participatory Action Research (PAR), ADIC worked alongside local people in establishing a shared common vision or dream for their community. Then, we prepared a strategy with the community leaders and members to respond to it.

This community is now more resilient and in a stronger position of readiness for responding to any further threats to local livelihoods.

Natural resources, particularly forest and fisheries, but that come along with land, are still the on-going topic of common concern for local communities, especially indigenous people, who have been dependent for generations.

ADIC sees the competition in natural resources remains due to many factors including illegal logging or fishing, in addition to the lack of local capacities to respond to changes.

Therefore, ADIC conducts policy research using two proven models — Participatory Action Research (PAR) and Collaborating for Resilience (CoRe) approaches — to engage and mobilize local communities to respond to social change in practical ways as well as advocate for changes at the policy level.

Livelihoods & Market Enhancement

By promoting access to secured land tenure rights, it would generate incentives for local communities to engage in pilot development activities, including adoption of improved technologies and enhanced investment in farming activities.

Building Market Linkages

Cambodia imports nearly 60 percent of its market supplies from Vietnam, valued at US$140 million per year.

COVID-19 trade restrictions and other barriers have led to more reliance on domestic supplies. Opportunities for the development of horticulture value-chains in indigenous communities are therefore substantial.

To sustainably address the development challenges of local communities, ADIC works with stakeholders to develop a comprehensive approach for managing coordination efforts and careful testing of flexible implementation methods of potential livelihood development solutions.

Enhanced and sustainable livelihood development requires addressing a two-pronged development challenge: first, community members' secured access to traditional agricultural lands and forest products; and, second, the sustainable promotion of improved agricultural production practices targeting profitable value chains. Especially in IP areas, where there are favorable natural advantage along with diversified sources of revenues including off-farming and non-farming activities.

The agricultural production potential in IC remains largely untapped, particularly for horticulture for which climatic conditions in the areas are very favorable.

This is largely due to the lack of introduction of improved technology and ineffective extension services to improve husbandry practices. Domestic demand for vegetable products has been growing fast due to rapid urbanization, increased income, and tourism.
