This program focuses on strengthening a coalition and network of NGOs around Tonle Sap, Coastal, and Mekong provinces through promoting a collective working culture among NGOs. It will also help for advocacy to improve small fishers rights of access to and control over fishery resources through our NGOs coalition's research finding, and supports the formation of the community fisher networks into the Assembly of the Cambodian Fishers.
