Increase the capacity of local communities to respond to the problem of wildfire in the floodplain of Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia. Pilot community-based fire management with three community fisheries in and around Boeung Chhmar Ramsar Site. Support them to develop forest fire management plans and provide them with the training and resources needed to implement them safely. Develop a working model that can be replicated in other flooded forest communities.

Strategic Direction: 4 Empower local communities to engage in conservation and management of priority key biodiversity areas
