Main Information
Title Rapid, participatory assessment for wetland valuation in Cambodia
Description This IUCN brief describes a case study application of “participatory approaches” to assess the importance of wetland resources to people from Veun Sean, a small island village located in the Mekong River within the Ramsar site. The study goes beyond quantitative assessment to understand the context in which resource-use decisions are made - and the linkages between poverty and the importance of wetland resources.
