The NGO Forum on Cambodia, a network of 89 civil society organizations in Cambodia, organized a three-day training of trainers (ToT) on “Improving Equity in Forestry Management and REDD+ Process” for community facilitators.
Twenty-three of its members learned more about the principle and elements of social equity and inclusion in the forests and climate change context. They also acquired new skills and tools to better engage with local communities to address equity issues in forest management and REDD+.
This training was part of an action plan developed by the NGO Forum on Cambodia, which was awarded a small grant under the Challenge Fund component of USAID’s Grassroots Equity and Enhanced Networks in the Mekong Program. The trainers used sessions from Equity ToT manual as the core training material, which was translated in Khmer and adapted to the Cambodian context.
