Getting supports from the project in terms of capacity building is a great asset for CFR committees as well as other relevant stakeholders to have initiate ideas to enhance rice field fishery resources in the community. The CFR Good Governance- the 5 criteria, have been implementing by the committees for management plan development and implementation, resources mobilization and specifically the linkage to the relevant actors.
Mr. Chhon Chheap, the CFR committee chief expressed that the project has supported us many things including knowledge of rice field fishery management, CFR management plan development, resources of cash and kind mobilization. From the capacity development, we could get more support from the private sector in cash to buy communication radios (Icoms), building guardhouse and from the commune fund to organize Fish Day at our community. As a result from the commune supported, 14,000 fingerling (silver barb, catfish and climbing perch) were released in CFR ponds and 40 of flooded trees (Reang) planted around CFR banks and the contribution for building a guardhouse were implemented. 842.50$ was contributed from the private sector, villagers, from commune councillors and other contributors.
