Strengthen grassroots networks and support for conservation and sustainable use of riverine ecosystems along the Sesan and Srepok Rivers. Raise awareness of locally originated threats (such as overfishing) and help communities respond to remotely originated threats (such as hydropower development). Achieve sustainability by integrating conservation measures into Commune Development Plans and establishing civil society networks spanning multiple levels.

Strategic Direction: 3 Engage key actors in reconciling biodiversity conservation and development objectives, with a particular emphasis on the Northern Limestone Highlands and Mekong River and its major tributaries
