From August 6-7, CPN organized a meeting with Prey Lang Core Group members in Preah Vihear province. There were 56 people (6 females). At the meeting, the participants selected provincial representatives and also recruited eight people to work at the national level. Two of the eight were selected to facilitate on behalf of all members across the four provinces of Preah Vihear, Kratie, Stung Treng, and Kampong Thom. Their roles also include coordinating with local and international NGOs which work with the Prey Lang Network. The participants also produced a work plan for their members to implement within their regions which include dissemination to their members on the roles and functions of the Prey Lang Core Group members. Finally, they will organize a national campaign to ask the government to protect natural resources, as well as conducting ongoing patrols in each province.
