Community forestry and fishery
This indicator shows the percentage of land and water areas included in community forestry and/or community fishery management initiatives in 2015.
By 2020, ecosystems that provide essential services, including services related to water, and contribute to health, livelihoods and well-being, are restored and safeguarded, taking into account the needs of women, indigenous and local communities, and the poor and vulnerable.
The community forestry and/or fishery coverage ranges from 0-100%, with higher values indicating a greater proportion of area included in community forestry and/or fishery management initiatives in 2015.
This indicator is available at the basin and country scales for Cambodia.
This indicator is available for 2015 as a baseline.
Open Development Cambodia has compiled the community forestry and community fishery information available through 2015, and delineated their areas as GIS shapefiles.
We overlayed the basin and country boundary layers with i) community forestry only, ii) community fisheries only, and iii) community forestry and fisheries, and calculated the percentage of each basin and country that overlaps at least one of these community management units.
Community forestry and fishery management areas were delineated based on governmental reports or statistics. The actual effectiveness of management practices in each is unmonitored.
