Tonle Sap was designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1997. This project funded by FAO, is part of their EU-funded "Cambodia Programme for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth in the Fisheries Sector: Capture Component", which aims at ensuring a sustainable, climate-resilient and inclusive development of Cambodia's fisheries. The project facilitates establishment of a "High-level Coordination Committee for the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve (TSBR)" to protect biodiversity and strengthen livelihoods, developing and leading an effective "Community of Practice", to administer the three complementary functions of the TSBR i.e. conservation, development and logistic support.
