Cambodia - Production and Sale of Non-Timber Forest Related Products
Mondulkiri Forest Venture

Projectdescription

Mondulkiri Forest Venture was set up by WWF to commercialize the collection and sale of Non-Timber Forest Related Products with a view to improve the income base of indigenous forest communities and to strengthen forest protection.

Mondulkiri sources sustainably harvested wild honey, resin and bamboo from a couple of associations. After some processing these resources are sold to national wholesalers and retailers.

Through branding, marketing and establishing new sales channels Mondulkiri Forest Venture contributes to the development of a value chain for sustainably sourced natural products in Cambodia. Further WWF seeks to build a demonstration project for sustainable investment in Non-Timber Forest Related Products in Cambodia and elsewhere.
