Cambodia and Vietnam have a deep dependence on marine fisheries for income and food security. Illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the regional waters of Cambodia and southern Vietnam threatens marine fisheries and coastal livelihoods in both countries. In response, Wild Earth Allies and Centre for Marinelife Conservation and Community Development are working together to mitigate IUU fishing and improve co-management of marine protected areas at a regional scale within Cambodia and Vietnam. We will develop a collaborative mechanism with government and civil society stakeholders to address regional IUU fishing pressures, while driving progress on strong co-management of fisheries resources and respective marine protected areas.
