With funding support from WWF, CEDAC had been implementing a pilot project titled “Agriculture Livelihood Project for the Sok San Indigenous Community” in 4 villages, Sok San Commune, Koh Ngiek District, Mundulkiri Province. It was a two-year project started in March 2008 and finished in February 2010. All 4 villages in Sok San commune were selected by the project – Klang Lei, Anchor, Chi Klob and Sre Thom.

The project seeks to address the issues affecting the livelihoods of indigenous communities in Sok San commune and to assist them in developing more sustainable livelihoods.  The main approach and activities of the project focused on building the capacity of indigenous human resources such as farmer experimenters, key farmers with expertise in specific theme areas of agriculture, and indigenous youth so that they can address the issues by themselves. The fields of project intervention were capacity building support in ecological agriculture, community finance (saving, credit and mutual help fund), community leadership and management.
