The sanctuary is one of the main wild life reserves in the province. The idyllic environment and the wide variety of flora and fauna make Phnom Nam Lear Sanctuary, Mondulkiri very popular to both local people and foreign tourists.
Phnom Namlear is 45 kilometers from Senmonorom town. The area is controlled by the Bunong community; therefore, there was no solar energy, lack of clean water, and no electricity system for community. Even the community did not have restrooms or toilets for visitors when they came to visit Phnom Namlear.
Cambodia Indigenous Peoples Organization and partners supported a project since the Bunong community uses traditional ways and has limited resources to manage this protected area “Promote the use of solar energy, practices integrated farming and building some CBET infrastructure for IPs community of Phnom Namlear CPA,” which is provided solar energy, clean water, and a few buildings for community and also provide capacity on financial management and promoted them to have good structure for this community. This project is financial supported by United Nations Development Program-UNDP.
