Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

CAM:

Output 1. Significant progress has been made on Output 1. Nine Community Protected Areas (CPAs) totaling 18,157 ha have been designated, boundaries demarcated with poles, and their 5-year management plans approved by the Ministry of Environment (MOE). Under Forestry Administration (FA), 14 Community Forests (CFs) with an area of 32,769 ha have been approved by MAFF, boundary demarcation (580km) completed.

Output 2.

The contracts for firebreak and weeding control have been signed with seven CPAs and five CFs. 17 awareness raising events conducted on forest fire protection of natural vegetation. Seven forestry nurseries have been established and are operational. In Koh Kong (KKG) province three mangrove nurseries have produced a total of 300,000 mangrove seedlings and in Mondulkiri (MDK) province the two upland nurseries have produced a total of 51,650 seedlings.

Cumulatively, 680 ha of forest Enrichment Planting (EP) has been completed inside seven CPAs while 650 ha have been completed with Assisted Natural Regeneration method in nine CPAs. In addition, there have been 14 ha of forest planted in biodiversity corridor restoration. Under FA, a total of 1,028 ha of forest EP has been achieved within seven CFs while a total of 603 ha has been planted with ANR in nine CFs.

State Land Registration: The national Inception workshop was conducted in January 2018. The installation of the boundary poles and community impact identification has commenced with 20% completed.

Forest Research Station: Following the receipt of the no-objection letter from ADB for the development of the research station the FA/PIU completed the bidding process of Research Station Building and a contract was awarded, and construction has commenced.

Output 3.

Progress under the Livelihoods Improvement Strategy Development and Implementation (LISDI) by WWF and WCS. The contract commenced in July 2016. Against elapsed time of 67 %, the subprojects achieved 32 % average progress, with a range from 7 % to 51 % for each subproject.

Progress under Village Development Fund Saving Groups (VDFSGs): The International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) and Cambodian Centre for Study and Development in Agriculture (CEDAC) as a joint venture were recruited to conduct training, monitoring, and coaching for Communities to implement the village development fund. Thirty-seven VDFSGs formed and supported, with a total membership of 1,648 persons including 1,023 women (62%).

In March 2018, the EAs approved the provision of additional funds for CEDAC/IIRR to introduce Improved Practices for Native Chicken Production to Smallholder Farmers'. This would develop new business opportunities and family income in the project targeted communities (i.e. 30 villages).

Good progress for small-scale infrastructure subprojects: (i) 296 borehole and hand-dug wells constructed; (ii) 1,977 household latrines constructed; (iii) 819 household solar panels distributed; (iv) 14 community office solar panels were installed; (v) 15 community offices constructed; and (vi) 13 water tanks constructed.

Output 4.

The executing agencies (EAs) have prepared separated quarterly progress reports (from Q1-2014) and 2017 annual (+Q4) progress reports. Commencing in Q2 2018 the quarterly progress reports will be combined for both EAs. The 2018 annual work plan and budget has been prepared separately by each EA. The project M&E system has been established and regularly updates with sex disaggregated data tables associated with indicators in the DMF.

LAO:

Output 1: Progress in achieving output 1 indicators are on track. Three biodiversity conservation corridor regulations were approved by provincial governors and 35 village regulations were approved by district governors. 107 plots covering 352,940 hectares (ha) of conservation and protection forests were mapped and issued land use certificates. A total of 1,522 government officials attended technical, management and safeguard trainings and over 13,900 villagers participated in land use planning, forest management, patrolling and livelihood meetings.

Output 2: Progress was on track. Village patrolling teams were formed, equipped and operational in all original project villages and being prepared in additional financing villages with conservation agreement signed in all villages. A total of 352,939 ha of conservation and protection forest areas have been patrolled. In total, as at end of Q2 2018, 2,921 ha has been established under assisted natural regeneration (ANR) and 1,450 ha under forest plantation. It is expected that by end of 2018, the total afforestation area supported under the project will reach 4,450 ha, exceeding the target set for the Project of 3,900 ha. Participatory land use planning have been completed for 66 original villages and being implemented in the additional 17 villages.

Output 3: The livelihood program was established in 57 villages involving 962 households. Of the total 20 value-addition business models targeted, 16 have been identified and assessed. One model per district will be selected for implementation as pilot in end 2018. 56 village infrastructure schemes out of the total 65 schemes have been constructed and the remaining 9 are nearly completed.

Output 4: Implementation arrangement for the project has been established and functioning. Operational guidelines/manuals circulated on biodiversity corridors management and best practices.

VIE:

Output 1

1a. 4 year delay. Mapping is underway. Final figures will be updated when provincial pilot plans for establishment and management of provincial biodiversity corridors are approved by PPCs.

1b. PLUPs completed in 2015 and final results approved in 2016. CIPs prepared for 35 communes in 2015 and final CIPs approved in 2016 and 2017.

1c. 03 year delay. Revised total number of villages is now 37 instead of 40, and 32/37 CFM boards established (13 villages in TTH, 9 villages in QN, 10 villages in QT). The remaining 5 expected within Q2/2018. By Q3 2018, LUC expected to be issued to 13,997.94ha (i/o target of 10,000ha) of community forest.

1d. 03 year delay. LUC is just now being done for households. Figure of 2,000 LUCs may be changed. Forest planting achieved for 4,330.8 ha vs 4,517.1 ha agreed in AM of April 2018 Mission (vs 6,000ha of DMF target). Underachievement is due to (i) maximum forest areas identified for plantation in TTH, (ii) low interest of local residents to participate in the project in Quang Tri due to long delay of the activities; and (iii) short remaining time of project.

1e. Achieved (11,211 trainees) with 42% of trainees are female, 85% from ethnic minorities.

1f. To date, 25,7% of CFM committee members in 32 established boards are women (18,8 in QN, 32,7% in TTH, 20% in QT).

Output 2:

2a. To date, total CFM area is 13,997.94ha, including an increase of 3,188.5ha in Nam Giang (854,82 ha in Ngoi village is compensated for reduction of 854.82ha in Tay Giang of Quang Nam as agreed in AM of April 2018 Mission and 2,333.7ha is additional area). Finalization and approval of community forest management plans are expected in Q3 2018. Demarcation completion is expected in Q4 2018.

2b. Patrolling has been implemented since 2013. However, the objective and scope of this activitiy was changed since MTR in 2014. At the moment, it's expected to start patrolling activities in Q3/2018.

2c. Implementation is expected to start from Q3/ 2018 when land use certification is completed.

Output 3:

3a. Fully achieved. As of 30 June 2018, 1,110 households (362 hhs in QN, 477 hhs in QT, 271 hhs in TTH) received support.

3b. Fully achieved. To date, areas for forest-based livelihood plantations at 3 provinces are 1,332.6 hectares (349.7ha in QT, 550ha in TTH, 432.9ha in QN).

3c. Done. To date, all 35 CDFs are still operating well. 1,560 hhs were accessed to the loan. Most of people received loan from CDFs are women and ethnic minorities (QT: women are 100%, ethnic minorities are 93%; TTH: women are 69% and ethnic minorities are 85%). However, MOF instructed CDFs, seed capital with interests, to be returned to the government budget after the project is completion in Sep 2019.

3d. Complied with 42% of female members
