440 farming families in 22 villages of Bung Khong Long District, Nongkhai Province. Project members depend on the 1,290-ha Bung Khong Long Wetland for livelihood activities and food security. In response to threats to the wetland’s vitality posed by chemical-intensive agriculture, waste from tourism, and unregulated fishing, the project aims to take a community-based approach to reversing degradation. The main objectives of the project are to:

  1. Reduce drainage of chemicals into the Bung Khong Long Wetland
  2. Formulate a plan for sustainable use of water species
  3. Reduce costs associated with agricultural production
