All around the world, people are waking up to the deepening crisis of nature loss. A growing realization that nature is our life-support system. And that nobody will be spared from the impacts of its loss. Here at WWF, we are helping to tackle this enormous global challenge.

What we do
We are an independent conservation organization, striving to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife. From individuals and communities to business and government, we are part of a growing coalition calling on world leaders to set nature on the path to recovery by 2030. Together, we seek to protect and restore natural habitats, stop the mass extinction of wildlife, and make the way we produce and consume sustainable.

WWF Cambodia has recently moved the Rattan & Bamboo Project into the Sustainable Forest Program. The program implements Sida and IKEA-funded projects in the Coastal area, including Kampot, Preah Sihanouk, and Koh Kong province, and the Mekong Flooded and Eastern Plain Landscapes.

The Project Officer for rattan will report to the Senior Project Officer. He/she will work closely with CSOs and CBOs in the coastal area in providing backstopping for the sub-grant implementation and management and technical support to the CSO and communities on sustainable rattan production and marketing.
