  1. Capfish/FOSTER: The Capfish/Foster program is a three-and-a-half-year program funded by the European Union Delegation (EUD). The program focuses on improving the resilience, productivity, and socio-economic conditions of fishing communities as well as the ecological sustainability of the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve (TSBR) through community-centered interventions that improve access to safe water and sanitation through sustainable sanitation and water solutions like Handy Pods (HPod), Water Kiosk (WK)1 and eco-waste management services, enhanced education opportunity and quality for vulnerable and poor girls and boys with increased availability and accessibility to education to successfully transition through school and facilitate the development of sustainable alternative livelihoods. In addition, the Green Economy component of the program creates sustainable livelihoods and employment opportunities in three sub-sectors – eco- tourism, solar energy, and sustainable agriculture – through interventions that create income sources while reducing environmental pressures on the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve (TSBR). The program is the result of collaboration among a Consortium of 13 organizations with Oxfam as lead for the Western region in Siem Reap, Banteay Meanchey and Battambang province and consists of local and international non-governmental organizations, social enterprises, and leading businesses which bring together diverse expertise, best practices, and tested technologies developed in over 40 years of development interventions in Cambodia. The program is from 2021 to 2024 and will seek to address:
    1. WASH needs (Safe Clean Drinking Water and Sanitation)
    2. Support pre-primary, primary and lower secondary inclusive education
    3. Foster a green economy by strengthening skills of CFi members and creating an enabling environment for community entrepreneurship and investment in Eco- tourism (CBET and Commercial), sustainable agriculture (Rice and Horticulture), NTFP and renewable energy, and supporting community led- led green businesses through inclusive business models supported by the Private Sector Partners.
  1. Our Tonle Sap Project: The “Our Tonle Sap” Project adopts an integrated landscape approach to strengthen resilience to environmental change in ecosystems, communities and biodiversity throughout the Tonle Sap Biodiversity Reserve. The Project works simultaneously across multiple scales with government, communities and the private sector. It will enhance management and restoration of critical habitats to facilitate resilience to environmental change by improving government and community management of protected areas, developing and implementing community-level fire management plans, piloting community-managed vegetation rehabilitation and silviculture, and developing ecologically resilient livelihoods that protect floodplain habitat.
