October 18, 2013 | Posted in: News

On September 23-30, eight Prey Lang mappers (no women) including four PLCN representatives, and CYN continued collecting data on deforestation, remaining forest areas, IPs, schools, resin trees, ELCs, community forests, etc. They also met with commune chiefs from Siem Bok, Boeung Char, and Kampong Cham. The team was welcomed by the commune chiefs and came up with a plan to work together on Prey Lang protection. The Boeung Char commune chief reported that the community forests of Angkor An, Koh Ent Chey, Kampong Damrei, and Kampong Kboeung were now inside the ELC belonging to the Think Biotech Company due to the expansion of the concession area.
