Carbon credit for Seima Area

A carbon credit project is in the works for the Seima biodiversity areas in Kartie and Mondulkiri provinces. During a meeting between Chan Sarun, Minister of Agricultural, Forestry and Fisheries and Colin Poole, Director of Asia Programs for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WLCS) on Sept 15, it was decided that the carbon credit project will cover Seima area and experts will be sent to study and make an assessment for the project sometime in the middle of next year. The protection plan for the biodiversity areas in both provinces will ensure the protection of animals, and promote tree growing, eco-tourism sites and resorts.
