The community forestry approach plays an important role in poverty reduction. It empowers local communities by giving them tenure to sustainably manage forest resources and cope with various socio-economic and environmental problems. In Cambodia, the community forestry approach is an offshoot of a cohesive collaboration among the Forestry Administration, nongovernment organization (NGO)- partners, and village forestry units themselves, which led to the establishment of 485 community forestry project sites in 21 provinces as of mid-2016.
