Position: Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator (WWT)__Deadline:03Sep

We are a leading conservation organisation saving wetlands for wildlife and people across the world with our headquarters based in the United Kingdom.

Cambodia Programme
Wetlands cover 30% of Cambodia’s total land area, and 80% of all people in the country depend on wetlands for their livelihoods. This biodiversity hotspot is going through a period of rapid development. The benefits of this development are however not often directed to the poorest and most vulnerable communities, and the ecological integrity of the landscape is rarely considered.
Our work includes site protection, wetland assessments, community‐based management, sustainable livelihoods, and national‐level wetland guidance and capacity building. At present WWT’s field work is focused on Anlung Pring Wetland in Kampot Province as well as Boeung Prek Lapouv Wetland in Takeo Province.
