KSWS REDD+ Benefit Sharing Manual, version 2.0

Revenue generated by the project through carbon credit sales is distributed via a waterfall model, covering carbon credit transaction costs, a contribution to the Royal Government of Cambodia’s forest conservation fund, core project activities for KSWS REDD+, the Cash for Communities (C4C) program, KSWS REDD+ project strengthening, and an operating reserve. An integral part of the project is benefit sharing with 20 local communities that participate in the project. Fourteen key principles have been outlined to guide the development of a mechanism for benefit sharing.

Effects of social networks on interventions to change conservation behavior

Social networks are critical to the success of behavioral interventions in conservation because network processes such as information flows and social influence can enable behavior change to spread beyond a targeted group. We investigated these mechanisms in the context of a social marketing campaign to promote a wildlife poisoning hotline in Cambodia. With questionnaire surveys we measured a social network and knowledge and constructs from the theory of planned behavior at 3 points over 6 months. The intervention initially targeted ~11% (of 365) of the village, but after 6 months ~40% of the population was knowledgeable about the campaign. The likelihood of being knowledgeable nearly doubled with each additional knowledgeable household member. In the short term, there was also a modest, but widespread improvement in proconservation behavioral intentions, but this did not persist after 6 months. Estimates from stochastic actor-oriented models suggested that the influences of social peers, rather than knowledge, were driving changes in intention and contributed to the failure to change behavioral intention in the long term, despite lasting changes in attitudes and perceived norms. Our results point to the importance of accounting for the interaction between networks and behavior when designing conservation interventions.
