Seminar on Protected Area Management
Challenges in Managing State Land:
Managing competing interests for lands inside Protected Areas (PA).
Co-organized by: PNCA (Prekleap National College of Agriculture), the Ministry of Environment (MOE), and the Mekong Region Land Governance (MRLG) Project
In cooperation with: UNDP, WWF, Centre for Policy Studies (CPS), Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Winrock International, RECOFTC.
Date: 21st December 2015 (8:00 am to 4:30 pm)
Venue: Imperial Garden Villa and Hotel, Phnom Penh
Background: Protected areas are generally meant for conservation purposes, be it forest, biodiversity, landscape, or watershed. However, in reality, there are inhabitants living in these protected areas, many of whom are indigenous peoples. These people need to expand agricultural production not only to feed their expanding families, but also to move out of poverty and prosper. The management of Protect Areas is complicated by two major factors: i) an influx of immigrants from lowland provinces where populations are growing fast; and ii) long term land lease to private investors for agro-industrial development in order to accelerate economic development. These factors are placing significant pressure on the competing use of land especially in protected areas. A serious long sighted and appropriate responses for sustainability of the protected areas, including a re-organization of the management plan and internal zoning is required.
Prekleap National College of Agriculture (PNCA), the Ministry of Environment (MOE), and the Mekong Region Land Governance (MRLG) project have invited discussants to join a seminar that aims to:
- Foster common understanding on the challenges of managing state land in the protected areas.
- Stimulate the discussion among concerned stakeholders on appropriate interventions and policy instruments for addressing the challenges as well as harmonizing these competing interests for land in PA, especially for family farmers who are residing inside the PA.
- Propose next steps for continuing research-based dialogue between MOE and other stakeholders on the PA management.
The co-organisers of the event are expecting participants to join from Government, Donor Partners, International NGO and local NGOs, Indigenous People’s Organisations, Academia, Private Sector, and local media
