|Description||The goal of the technical assistance is sustainable management and conservation of natural resources and biodiversity in the Tonle Sap Basin. Its purpose is to prepare a project to manage and conserve natural resources in and around the transition area of the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve, in keeping with biosphere reserve zonation principles, through decentralized and participatory rural development support activities. The ensuing project would support community mobilization for formulation of development plans and implementation of small-scale infrastructure to enhance rural incomes and thereby relieve pressures on the natural resource base of the Tonle Sap Basin. The ensuing project would also research alternative livelihood activities and develop capacity for community-based natural resource management. It would adopt a process approach that strengthens community ownership and capacity through participatory planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||The thrusts of ADB's Tonle Sap Initiative aim at natural resource management, institutional development and capacity building, and poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable livelihoods. ADB's Country Strategy and Program, 2004-2006 for Cambodia reflects ADB's sectorwide approach to the Tonle Sap Basin, which ADB expects to pursue this approach over a 10-year horizon.|
