In Southeast Asia, GERES has over 20 years of experience in providing locally adapted, affordable and transferable energy solutions, with a focus on wood and biomass energy, to improve the resilience and the livelihoods of rural communities, empower local stakeholders and contribute to the sustainable management of natural resources.
In the context of climate change and strong pressure on Cambodian forest areas and natural resources, the project aims to support the development of a sustainable, legal and traceable woodfuels (namely wood and charcoal) sector in Cambodia. To achieve this goal the project will engage with all relevant stakeholders such as local communities and communes, relevant government institutions primarily the Forest Administration (FA) of the Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, and the Cambodian Ministry of Environment. Moreover, the project will also involve private professional actors including charcoal producers, commercial plantations, and will try to reach out to garment brands and their suppliers (which currently consume large amounts of non-sustainable wood).
This project builds on previous lessons learned from and achievements of two different three-year projects, SEFED and CEMAATERR Cambodia. These achievements include engagement with all actors, initiation of sustainable local planning, forest harvesting and community tree plantations, development of a mobile digital platform supporting the exchanges between all direct contributors in the sector and of a logistics and marketing platform for sustainable charcoal.
Over a period of 2 to 3 years, the project is also aimed at developing, shaping, testing, organising, formalizing and demonstrating viable models (altogether technical, legal, administrative, organisational and financial) to supply sustainable woodfuels (firewood and charcoal) for domestic, artisanal and industrial energy use.
In partnership with a social business coordinating the logistics and marketing of charcoal supply and delivery, the project should interact as a facilitator with the various actors involved (in production, exploitation, transformation, control/authorization/supervision, transport, marketing, …). It should also contribute developing the capacity of national, local and community (from forest communities and community protected areas) institutional actors, managers of protected areas, charcoal producers.
