About CRDT

CRDT is a Cambodian NGO which aims to lift communities out of poverty in support of environmental conservation. Our approach is participatory and community-based. We work in areas rich in biodiversity, undertaking activities that are in direct support of conservation efforts in those areas. Communities that are unsustainably dependent on natural resources, especially in protected areas, are high priorities for CRDT.


Our previous work demonstrates that we have a long-lasting impact on natural resource management in these communities.
