Communities at the Core of Protected Area Management: Learning from Customary Tenure Documentation Experiences in Cambodia. MRLG Case Study Series #8

The case study presents the lessons from three experiences of customary tenure documentation in protected areas in the Cambodian provinces of Preah Vihear, Mondul Kiri, and Ratanak Kiri. It is based on the work of the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Highlanders Association. The study examines how effective the documentation can be as a tool to improve tenure and natural resource rights, protected area management and conservation practices in protected areas. In particular, it can help to ensure adherence to inclusivity, and the principles of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC). It provides key insights into the importance of recognising the practices and tenure rights of forest dependent communities inside protected areas for both community well-being and conservation efforts. The lessons from the three initiatives lead to several recommendations relevant to the legal and policy framework or to protected area management practices. These recommendations aim to contribute to debates taking place in Cambodia to enhance nature conservation efforts.
