Position: Consultancy Announcement for conducting a Research On the Indigenous Communal Land Title (ICLT) Registration implication (Indigenous Community Support Organization)__Deadline:18-March

1.    Organizational Background:
The Indigenous Community Support Organization (ICSO) is a local Cambodian not-for-profit, non- governmental, and non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting and protecting the rights of indigenous peoples (IPs). ICSO registered with the Ministry of Interior (MoI) of the Kingdom of Cambodia since July 13, 2006, certified #840 MoI. ICSO has been operating in Cambodia since January 2007. The organization adopts a rights-based approach and strives for holistic and inclusive development and conservation for IPs marginalized groups in Cambodia.
ICSO empowers the indigenous communities to preserve and benefit from their land and natural resources, ensuring their welfare, decent livelihoods, and the celebration  of  their identity and culture. The organization strives to increase IPs' capacity and representation, enabling them to lead their own development and secure land tenure in ownership and self-determination for the preservation of their identity and common well-being. The organization remains committed to its vision of indigenous communities enjoying full economic, social, cultural, political, and natural resource rights, living with dignity and harmony.
2.    Program update and rational:
The main program of ICSO focuses on supporting the registration process of Communal Land Titling (CLT) for Indigenous Communities. ICSO provides support to 30 target villages located in 17 communes across 6 districts in Ratanakiri, which is the northeast province of Cambodia. Under ICSO's technical and financial assistance, this project development is led by 5 IPs’ groups such as Kreung, Tumpoun, Charay, Kachak, and Prov. ICSO directly collaborates with 334 committee leaders/representatives from Indigenous Communities (IC) who have been recognized as legal entities by the Ministry of Interior (MoI). The support provided by ICSO encompasses 5,043 households, which consist of a population of 21,405 IPs (including 1,391 females). Additionally, ICSO aims to protect and register approximately 29,049 hectares of IPs' ancestral land, which includes residential land, agricultural land, reserved land, spiritual forest land, and burial forest land.
The most recent achievement of ICSO in the Communal Land Title (CLT) registration process is the successful registration of 13 Indigenous Communities (ICs) out of the total 30 ICs. These 13 ICs have obtained their CLTs legally from the Ministry of Land Management Urban Planning and Construction (MoLMUPC). The CLT registration has had a significant positive impact on the livelihoods of the IPs, benefiting a total of 1,976 households and a population of 7,768 IPs (including 3,755 females). The registered CLTs cover a land area of 12,568 hectares, which includes Residential Land, Agricultural Land, Burial Forest Land, Shifting  Garden  Land, and  Spiritual  Forest Land.  This  registration  has provided legal recognition and security to the ancestral lands and forests of the IPs in these 13 communities.
However, there are still 17 ICs that require ongoing support and assistance from ICSO. These 17 ICs face various challenges, including issues such as land overlapping with natural resource protected areas, conservative ecology corridors, community forestry, economic land and mining concessions, private land, and others that need to be found by consultant and report to relevant stakeholders.
