Cambodian people, especially indigenous people along the Sesan, Srepok, and Sekong Rivers are living safely, with the freedom and responsibility to manage, protect, conserve and use their natural resources to improve their living standards while contributing to sustainable development.
The 3S Rivers Protection Network (3SPN) works with the women, men and youth, especially of indigenous communities, living around the 3S rivers to build their capacity, increase awareness of their fundamental rights, engage in research and documentation, and disseminate information about the impacts of hydropower dams on society and the environment. 3SPN cooperates with partners at all levels to define approaches to development and ‘best practices’ that respect and empower local communities regarding their rights, their conservation and management of their natural resources, and their livelihood security.
