Innovation Forum and Everland present a video extract focusing on the Wildlife Conservation SocietyKeo Seima REDD+ Project from the recent webinar, How REDD+ is working to save Cambodia's forests.
The project features the highest number of species recorded for any Cambodian protected area, with 15 species new to science. The project has world-class biodiversity monitoring and data. The project has defended the traditional rights of the forest-dwelling Indigenous Bunong people, helping them to secure the first Indigenous community land title in Cambodia, and through the REDD+ Benefit Sharing Mechanism, provides significant funding to community-led development projects.
