In 2010, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) endorsed the National Forest Programme (NFP) 2010-2029, which provides a framework of policy and strategy for sustainable forest management. It is composed from six different Programmes, and Programme 6 (Sustainable Forest Financing) is linked to the REDD+ implementation. (NFP Structure)

CAM-REDD is one of REDD+ development partners (others include UN-REDD and the FCPF) to implement Cambodia’s REDD+ Readiness Roadmap (hereinafter REDD+ Roadmap), which was endorsed by stakeholders (including relevant ministries/agencies of RGC) in September 2010. CAM-REDD was officially endorsed by the Forestry Administration, on behalf of the RGC, and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), on behalf of Government of Japan, on May 27, 2011.

Since the establishment of CAM-REDD, it has assisted a variety of initiatives of the REDD+ Roadmap, which are encompassed in the following four outcomes:

  • Outcome 1: Effective National Management of the REDD+ Readiness Process and Stakeholder Engagement
  • Outcome 2: Development of the National REDD+ Strategy
  • Outcome 3: Improving Capacity to Manage REDD+ at Subnational/National Levels
  • Outcome 4: Design of a Monitoring System and RLs/REL Framework  and Capacity for Implementation

These four outcomes consist with those of multi-year work plan of the Cambodia National REDD+ Taskforce, endorsed at the 3rd Taskforce meeting on March 28, 2014.

CAM-REDD supports various initiatives to achieve these outcomes, but has been requested to concentrate its support on outcomes 2 to 4. It has been providing technical and associated financial support to the REDD+ pilot projects in Oddar Meanchey and in Seima Protected Forest. In addition, CAM-REDD has been supporting other protected forests, including Central Cardamom Protected Forest (CCPF), Preah Vihear Protected Forest (PVPF); and potential protected forests Western Siem Pang, Veun Sai-Siem Pang, and Prey Long, as potential sites for conservation and sustainable management of forests under REDD+. Transition from a project-based approach to a subnational approach is also one of the key areas supported by CAM-REDD.

CAM-REDD will be implemented from June 2011 to May 2016. It provides its support through the key agencies of RGC.
